Overview

The revision of this best-selling book presents a comprehensive analysis of how various criminal justice systems throughout the world compare. New co-author Harry Dammer has extensively revised the text to reflect the latest trends and most up-to-date information on such hot topics as international crime control and corrections. By using a topical approach (examining various aspects of each system, such as policing, drugs, sentencing, and juvenile justice) rather than a country- by-country approach, the book gives students a more realistic understanding of the similarities and differences of each system. The authors use six model" countries (China, England, Germany, Japan, Saudi Arabia, and France) to provide specific examples and explore historical, political, economic, social, and cultural influences on each system.
