Shop on Barnes & Noble


This book provides the first serious look at the origins and development of the role of soldier-policemen: the gendarmeries of nineteenth-century Europe. Looking at how the model was first developed in France and then exported across Europe, Emsley argues that gendarmes played a significant role in establishing the state, particularly in rural areas.
