About the Author

Maurice Punch has worked at universities in the UK, US and the Netherlands - where he lives - and his research expertise is on policing and corporate crime. He has written several books including Zero Tolerance Policing (Policy Press: 2006) and Police Corruption (Willan: 2009) and published in many journals. He is now an independent researcher and consultant. He is Visiting Professor at the Mannheim Centre of Criminology, London School of Economics, and also in the School of Law, King's College London.


"This book provides a lively and accessible overview of a neglected and widely misunderstood subject. It is essential reading for students, academics, police officers, policy makers, politicians and all those concerned about police use of deadly force." Dr Ben Bowling, Professor of Criminology & Criminal Justice, King's College London "Since international terrorism came to London streets and the mistaken shooting dead of Jean Charles de Menezes in 2005, issues around armed policing have yearned for serious, in-depth analysis. This excellent book achieves this and it should be a 'must read' for all those involved with, or interested in, the profound issues of life and death that lie at heart of Maurice Punch's analysis." Professor P.A.J. Waddington, University of Wolverhampton
