The only handbook that offers a comparative analysis of defendant rights in criminal courts under the four major international systems of law from Islam to America. Innocent until proven guilty. Free legal representation. Habeas corpus. That's our system. But how are defendants treated in the other three major justice systems in the world? What are their rights? And what is permissible in other courts? Look no further than this unique reference work that reveals how defendants are treated around the world. Written for the general reader, this book examines the scope of the legal rights that the four major international legal systems (Common Law, Civil Law, Islamic Law, and Socialist Law) provide for those accused of a crime.;Defendant Rights examines the history of the Anglo-American legal tradition and compares and contrasts this with the major international systems of the world. Of special significance are the book's sections on the development of the British Dooms Law Books under the Anglo-Saxon kings, and the Magna Carta's impact on American legal thought. Especially important in today's political climate are the coverage of Islam's sacred text, the Koran, and the role of the Islamic Kadi.
