Leading scholars describe and discuss criminal procedure in England, Belgium, France, Germany and Italy, providing up-to-date analyses of the main differences and similarities of each system in historical context. Scholars examine the accusatorial and inquisitorial traditions; cross influences between the two traditions; and current pressures for harmonisation. Extended essays include topics on public prosecutors, the rights of victims and defendants, evidence, negotiated justice and media influence. This will interest academics and postgraduates in criminal law; comparative, EU and human rights lawyers; lawyers interested in European harmonization and in reforming criminal procedure. Translation supervised by J. R. Spencer.
