Counter-Terrorism Policing examines the impact of terrorism on the policing organisation and culturally diverse communities. This book is the first of its kind to contextualise counter-terrorism policing in a conceptual framework and takes account of the unique challenge of the increasing cosmopolitan character of major cities. Based on detailed documentary and ethnographic research it holds significant lessons for cosmopolitan cities around the world.
