Giving you a solid overview of today’s diverse systems, bestselling COMPARATIVE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEMS, 4/e presents a comprehensive analysis comparing the various criminal justice systems throughout the world. Thoroughly revised and updated--and extremely reader friendly--the Fourth Edition reflects the latest trends, issues, and information on international juvenile justice, policing, terrorism, and more. Rather than using a traditional “country-by-country” organization, the text equips you with a more realistic understanding of the similarities and differences of the world’s systems by taking a unique topical approach as it examines various aspects of each justice system, such as policing, drugs, sentencing, and juvenile justice. 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. The Fourth Edition is packed with relevant examples, emphasizes critical thinking skills throughout, and includes an assortment of innovative learning tools to maximize your course success!
