Summary

Outlining the policy, developments, and influence of the Russian police, this book highlights the past, present, and future of police forces in Russia. Beginning with the period prior to the revolution of 1917, the authors detail the history in chronological order from the 1864 justice reform of the Russian Empire to the democratization of the Soviet Police under "Khrushchev'"s thaw." The second part of the text focuses on the present structure and identity of the Russian police, including public attitudes toward the police, corruption within it, and the role of women in the police forces. The final section of the book analyzes the implications of past policy and offers perspectives on future policy.
