Description

For courses in comparative criminal justice systems, comparative criminology, and comparative government.

Designed to effectively explain the complexities of justice systems around the world, COMPARATIVE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEMS: A TOPICAL APPROACH, 6/e makes the comparative approach far more understandable and accessible, helping students recognize the growing importance of an international perspective. It organizes key concepts in a sequence that many students will already find familiar, progressing from issues of law to the agencies of police, courts, and corrections. Students will gain a realistic understanding of the many ways policing, adjudication, and corrections systems can be organized and operated. Unlike most competitive books, it contains coverage of more than 30 countries, offering insights into everything from Islamic legal tradition to recent criminal justice reforms in Japan. This edition’s improvements include new coverage of “hybrid” legal systems (e.g., China); Learning Objectives utilizing Bloom’s taxonomy phrasing; and more visually appealing images throughout.
