This second edition of Alexander's The Administration of Justice in Criminal Matters was first published in 1915, and reissued with a supplement in 1919.
Within this text, Alexander has endeavoured to capture not simply the components of the criminal justice system, but the very spirit in which justice is administered. Although the book's focus is primarily on law, modern readers will appreciate the extent to which themes of history, politics and sociology are integral to the arguments of the text.
Those with an interest in the history of criminal administration will also find that much is offered in these pages, as they encounter a detailed and fascinating summary of the structure and practices of the criminal justice system at the beginning of the twentieth century.
