Offering a fascinating account of the development of women police over the past twenty years, this book refers to the author's extended research in India to examine how the Indian experience demonstrates a valuable alternative to the Anglo-American model; not only for traditional societies but for women police in the West as well. With reference to the establishment in 1992 of all-women units in Tamil Nadu, this unique experiment proved highly successful in enhancing the confidence and professionalism of women officers and ensuring the effectiveness and efficiency of the police. At a time when policing is being rethought all over the world, not only in traditional societies, the Tamil Nadu practice illustrates important lessons for western countries that are finding it increasingly difficult to recruit and retain women officers. Natarajan's remarkable book is an important and original contribution to the literature on gendered policing, which to date has concentrated almost exclusively on the US and British experience.

Review text: "Ganz besonders wünscht man sich das Handbuch in den Händen der für die Strafrechtspolitik Verantwortlichen und ihrer Berater. Das differenzierte Bild, das die vielen Beiträge vom Kriminalitätsgeschehen im In- und Ausland vermitteln, von seinen Tätern und seinen Opfern, von Erfolgen und Misserfolgen bei der Kriminalprävention auf ihren verschiedenen Stufen und von erfüllten und enttäuschten Hoffnungen der Opfer auf Berücksichtigung ihrer Anliegen an die Strafjustiz, ist in hohem Maße geeignet, eine rationale und humane Strafrechtspolitik zu befördern [...]Reinhard Böttcher in: Juristische Rundschau 6/2010 "Das Werk in seinen zwei Bänden gehört in jedes gut sortierte kriminologische Bücherregal. Aber auch der Strafverteidiger bzw. der Praktiker, der mit strafrechtlichen Bezügen in Berührung kommt, kann auf das Handbuch nicht mehr verzichten. Einzig der hohe Preis mag den geneigten Interessierten abschrecken. Aber hier sei auf den hohen Gewinn einer solchen Anschaffung hingewiesen. Der Autor dieses Textes jedenfalls ist von Büchern aus dem de Gruyter Verlag noch nie enttäuscht worden."Matthias Cedra in:Kleiner Advokat 10/2010.

Warum werden Verbrechen begangen? Steckt das Bose in den biologischen Anlagen oder ist das soziale Umfeld fuer die Kriminalitat verantwortlich? Gibt es geborene Verbrecher? Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts werden diese Fragen zum Ausgangspunkt einer neuen Wissenschaft, der Kriminologie. Warum beginnen Mediziner und Soziologen gerade zu dieser Zeit, Kriminalitat wissenschaftlich zu erforschen? Welche Theorien werden entwickelt und diskutiert? Und welche Rolle spielt die Kriminalpolitik bei der Entwicklung der neuen Wissenschaft? Ist die Kriminologie an der Wende vom 19. zum 20. Jahrhundert ueberhaupt eine Wissenschaft? Diese Fragen werden hier fuer das Deutsche Kaiserreich erstmals eingehend und auf einer sehr breiten Quellengrundlage untersucht. eine "anregend geschriebene Studie. a Die durch das Konzept der Verwissenschaftlichung gewonnenen Schluesse sind sehr geeignet, auch die fortgeschrittene Diskussion zur Geschichte der Kriminologie zu bereichern."
