Summary "This all new book brings new perspectives and ideas for police labor leaders to succeed in these challenging times; and includes major revisions and updates of the 1997 book Police Association Power, Politics, and Confrontation, including a title change. The book is an expansive and comprehensive text on police unions, encompassing the vast and intricate changes that have taken place in the field since the authors' last book. There are principles at work in every community, which, if understood by police labor leaders, will allow them to drive their organizations to greatness. These principles concern the accumulation and effective use of power as the primary means of achieving a police labor organization's goals. The book is divided into eight primary parts, each of which looks at one facet of power. Additionally, a historical perspective of the police labor movement is provided, with the first significant updating of the state of the police labor movement in over 25 years. The authors' collective credentials and lifelong work allow them to tell a most useful story about what it takes for police association leaders to face the real-life, day-in and day-out struggles and how they can effectively put their organizations on the path to success."--BOOK JACKET.
