For courses in Comparative Criminal Justice Systems, Comparative Criminology, and Comparative Government.

Unique in its topical approach, this best-selling text examines systems of law, police, courts, and corrections by using more than 30 different countries to show the diversity in legal systems around the world. The book's organization allows instructors to cover the material in a familiar format (law, police, courts and corrections) and helps students understand the various ways policing, adjudication, and corrections systems can be organized and operated. This edition features more complete coverage of Islamic legal tradition, information on reform in Japan, more use of primary sources and updated material throughout.
