Cops and constables: American and British fictional policemen
Bowling Green State University Popular Press, Jan 1, 1986 - Literary Criticism - 204 pages
In both British and American detective fiction the police detective has emerged as a fictional protagonist. However, the American policemen have not achieved the prominence of their British counterparts. The thirteen essays in this volume indicate some of the principle elements which appear again and again in both British and American police procedurals.
