I’m less interested in the modern politics of the police, but the history section in here is very clear and would have been super useful when I was making Tuesday’s post about the history of policing. And although I don’t know much about medieval theatre, the first words I saw when I flipped the book open to a random page were “by my balls!” so you know it’s going to be enjoyable on some level.
