Welcome to Anthropoliteia!

Welcome to Anthropoliteia!  Our site is still very much under construction, but we hope you bear with us and check back soon.

We get our name from the Ancient Greek words anthropos (human) and politeia (the business of running the polis, The City or politics; from which we get the word “police”).

Once we’re fully rolling, we will be an interdisciplinary (political science, sociology, anthropology) group blog focused on the study of police, policing and security from a holistic and global perspective.  In addition to irreglar posts from our contributors, we’re planning a bunch of cool features including: “Reports from the Field” and “Policing in the News” as well as a number of resources (bibliographies, useful sites, etc.)
