"This interesting anthology traces changing notions of masculinity in various police agencies in recent history....the work is the best quarry about police sources this reviewer has seen in recent years. Summing up: Highly Recommended." - P.T. Smith, CHOICE, October 2012 "This edited collection on how masculine ideologies have shaped, and were shaped by, policing both culturally and institutionally, is a joy to read ... As the study of masculinities slowly makes inroads into areas of history heretofore viewed with either a traditional political focus or, more recently, a specifically female-orienated approach, a collection such A History of Police and Masculinities, 1700-2010 is a welcome addition to gender scholarship." - Deborah Seiler, Otto-Friedrich University, Germany in Parergon "This worthy book casts significant light on an under-explored facet of police history."-Shane Ewen, Journal of Continuity and Change
