I was hoping that some of you guys might be able to recommend some good literature that I may be able to buy/use for my dissertation reading material, this might be a long shot but I know some of the LEO's that post on here have studied Criminal Justice. I am hoping to base my topic on self-defense techniques, tactics, physical restraint, armed and unarmed combat scenarios, and the general safety of LEO's on the street. My title will probably sound something like; 'Are the Police adequately trained and equipped to effectively defend themselves in hostile situations'. Any recommendations for books, journals, websites etc will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

"On Combat" by David Grossman is the best text I've read in reference to what happens to a person, both physiologically, and mentally during the stress of combat. It is not unarmed combat specific but the ideology certainly cover unarmed combat. The book does alot to explain why most of the small joint manipulation, and other fine motor skill tactics cannot work when all hell breaks loose.
