This special 35th anniversary edition contains the original, unchanged text that inspired a generation, alongside two new chapters that explore the book's continued significance for today's readers. The Preface provides a brief retrospective account of the book's original structure, the rich ethnographic, intellectual and theoretical work that informed it, and the historical context in which it appeared. In the new Afterword, each of the authors takes up a specific theme from the original book and interrogates it in the light of current crises, perspectives and contexts.

Praise for Policing the Crisis:
'A remarkable tour de force which will provide an invaluable framework for any future work on crime, law and the state... It is a major achievement both in terms of its contribution to social theory and political debate' - British Journal of Sociology
'Probably one of the most important books to be written on race relations in Britain' - Race and Class
'A penetrating study of post-war British society which not only has depth but is powerfully written... Policing the Crisis is an impressive combination of sophisticated theory and thorough concrete analysis' - Tribune
