" Undoubtedly the most remarkable police organization in the annals of history is London's Metropolitan Police - better and more familiarly known as Scotland Yard, Responsible for the maintenance of order in all but one square mile of the world's greatest capital, its large outer divisions now extend far into the counties outside London. Its methods of law enforcement have long been the model for police forces around the world and its history is as colorful as it is inspiring. But even beyond this the history of the Yard is bound up with the British national and political background of more than one hundred and twenty years. "

" In this book, Douglas G. Browne tells the history of Scotland Yard and shows how it has arrived through the years at its present lofty position. Privileges granted by the authorities at New Scotland Yard have enabled copious use to be made, often for the first time, of the official records of the Metropolitan Police. Except for particular instances which are of interest in their own right, police work of the routine kind is touched upon only where it bears upon the main theme of the book - the development of a remarkable organization of a typically British character. Civilian but disciplined, semimilitary but unarmed, affected in some degree by every change of government, constantly improvising to meet changing conditions, the Metropolitan Police still maintains and cherishes the traditions of public services impressed upon it a hundred and twenty-six years ago by Robert Peel. "

" DOUGLAS G. BROWNE is a native of London and the grandson of Hablot K. Browne who, under his nom de plume of Phiz, is remembered as the illustrator of some of Dickens' best works. Educated in British schools, he studied art, but eventually decided to be a writer. He has numerous published works to his credit including short stories, novels and general books. "
