(p.1) 1 Introduction
Gendarmes and the State in Nineteenth-Century Europe

Clive Emsley

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter sets out the purpose of the book, which is to study the development and origin of soldier-policemen who have been ignored in the gendarme. It describes Gendarmerie as the most efficient way to maintain the peace in Europe because it provides a surveillance half civil, half military, spread across the whole territory.

Keywords:   soldier-policemen, gendarme, Gendarmerie, peace, Europe
