Leading At the Edge: True Tales from Canadian Police in Peacebuilding and Peacekeeping Missions Around the World by Ben J.S. Maure M.S.C. is an uplifting book that will take readers across a number of post-conflict zones to scenes of devastating natural disasters. The book also covers three decades of effective law enforcement and rule of law development that examines international criminal justice and peacekeeping missions in Croatia, Namibia, Guatemala, Kosovo, East Timor, Sierra Leone, Sudan, Palestine, Afghanistan, and Haiti. The portrayals and anecdotes are enlightening, fascinating, and awe-inspiring. The author has shared ten true stories that are inspiring and give a unique perspective on peacebuilding, peacekeeping, and personal achievements.

Leading At the Edge is for police officers, readers who are interested in foreign diplomacy, international affairs, military affairs, criminal justice reforms, or anyone who is interested in peacekeeping. The brave duties of police peacebuilders and peacekeepers from nations around the world will show readers how exciting, fulfilling, and dangerous it is to be an international peacekeeper. It also shows the roles of these peacekeeping forces in times when democracy is under threat, and the helplessness of certain police officers during their missions. Canadian Police Officers are known for their fairness, impartiality, and expertise, and these stories of courage, astuteness, and professionalism make it an engaging read. The stories in this book make it a page-turner for all those who love challenges and adventures that come in the name of peace and security. Ben J.S. Maure M.S.C. has dealt with the stories in detail, leaving readers awe-struck by the wonderful contributions and work of Canadian Police Officers.
