Sophie Body-Gendrot speaks about her book that looks at the growth of incidents around the world that can be seen as symptomatic of major transformation in globalized society, government and technology. Combining qualitative and quantitative research, this ground-breaking text analyzes oppositional notions of order and disorder in global, national, and local contexts and considers the role of the police, the justice system, and other authorities in developing a range of responsive strategies (Routledge Press).
