from diverse socio-cultural perspectives take into account the expected role of law enforcement agencies in plural democratic societies and Indias constitutional framework, also how far these agencies have stood up to that role and deviated from the same. The essays take into account the colonial heritage, structure, training and working conditions of the police agencies to determine their attitude and behaviour. Role of police has not been evaluated in isolation but in the framework of socio-political structures and processes. The reports of various commission and studies have also been analysed and suggestions have been thoroughly examined. The purpose is not just to condemn the police but to evaluate the system in a manner which can be used for improving the situation. Contributors include Kirpal Singh Dhillon, Prakash Louis, Abdulrahim Vijapur, R K Raghavan, Prem Dhar, Malaviya among many others.
