This work aims to meet the need for an accessible introductory text on comparative criminal justice, examining the ways different countries and jurisdictions deal with the main stages and elements in the criminal justice process, from policing through to sentencing. Examples are taken from all over the world, with a particular focus on Europe, the UK, the United States and Australasia.;The main aims of the book are to provide the reader with: a comparative perspective on criminal justice and its main components; an understanding of the increasing globalisation of justice and standards of the administration of justice; a knowledge of methodology for comparative research and analysis; an understanding of the most important concepts in criminal justice (such as inquisitorial and adversarial trial systems, policing styles and principles, crime control versus due process, retribution versus rehabilitation etc); and an insight into what the essential ingredients of doing justice might be.
