I am looking for recommendations of any books/articles/studies done on the history and organization of the police (including gendarmerie) in Central Europe, late 19th-early 20th centuries. I'm preparing a PhD dissertation proposal for a project on the role of the police in state- and nation-making in interwar Czechoslovakia. Anything of a comparative or theoretical nature is most welcome, as well as anything in English, German, Czech, or French. I'm looking to read up on the relevant secondary literature, since my focus previously has been on nationalism and state-building, and I have not had much bibliographic luck on my own so far. Thank you very much for your help.
Here is what I have already found:
Policing Interwar Europe: Continuity, Change and Crisis, 1918-40. Edited by Gerald Blaney. Basingstoke, UK: Palgrave Macmillan, 2007.
Police in Transition: Essays on the Police Forces in Transition Countries. Edited by András Kádár. Budapest: Central European University Press, 2001.
Police Forces: A Cultural History of an Institution. Edited by Mladek Klaus. Studies in European Culture and History. New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2007.
