Renaissance lawman, the education and deeds of Eliot H. Lumbard, Martin Alan Greenberg

"This book is about the times and public career of Eliot Howland Lumbard. He was not your "ordinary lawman." In fact, he might easily have been identified as a "Renaissance Lawman." The concept was introduced by the National Advisory Commission on Higher Education for Police Officers referring to the graduation of future officers who would be sufficiently knowledgeable in order to develop and deliver better programs for coping with crime (see Sherman 1978). While Lumbard gained considerable expertise in the operations of the political and justice systems, he proceeded to capitalize on this knowledge to become both an advocate and initiator of progressive reforms. His contributions on behalf of public safety have been largely forgotten but throughout this biography Greenberg successfully juxtaposes many of his activities with many of the major historical developments of his time"--, Provided by publisher
