"In Police: A Field Guide, incisively cuts through the ‘copspeak’ all around us—the language of policing that turns cattle prods into ‘non-lethal pain compliance’ and state-sanctioned sexual assault into a ‘body-cavity search.’ With this edited collection of new essays, Correia and Tyler take us deeper still. As Violent Order brilliantly elucidates, policing is not only racist and dehumanizing—it is world making, a way of fabricating capitalist racial fictions about nature and human nature. Violent Order illuminates the very nature of policing, which makes it essential reading for moving us from reform to abolition." —Naomi Murakawa, author, The First Civil Right

"In September 2021, the Atlanta City Council voted to raze 85 acres of city-owned 

forest land and to replace it with a massive new police training facility. The pro-

posed facility, dubbed ‘Cop City’ by organisers who mobilised against it, was 

backed by Atlanta’s ruling class, but faced widespread community opposition....  It’s difficult to make sense of projects like Cop City if one believes that policing is an institution generally designed to promote public safety. Why would a city and its corporate backers pursue such an unpopular and destructive project? How can they justify the destruction of nature in the era of oncoming climate catastrophe?

Those who are looking for answers will find many in Violent Order: Essays on the  Nature  of  Police,  an  edited  collection  by  scholar-activists  David  Correia  and Tyler  Wall  that  explores  not  only  the  police’s  role  in  repressing  social  movements, but also their role in constructing the harmful conditions that social movements work to transform." —Micah Herskind's review for Race and Class

"This book serves as an antidote to a range of contemporary tropes that increasingly fetishise forms of punitive-paternalism...The book also serves as a vaccine against the orthodoxy of the law-and-order mythology that has colonised almost all areas of culture and politics across the globe." —Erasmus Research
