About the book: This is the first academic collection to explore the history of detective police. Ranging from Europe to the USA and Australasia, it investigates themes central to the history of detection, such as the inchoate distinction between criminals and detectives, the professionalisation of detective work and the establishment of colonial police forces. It discusses detectives as an an occupational group with a distinct occupational culture, and examines the dynamic interaction between the fictional and the real life detective.
