World Criminal Justice Systems

A Comparative Survey

By

  • Richard Terrill

This comparative text provides an understanding of major world criminal justice systems by discussing and comparing the systems of six of the world’s countries: England, France, Russia, China, Japan, and a new chapter on South Africa -- each representative of a different type of legal system. An additional chapter on Islamic law uses Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Turkey as main examples. Political, historical, organizational, procedural, and critical issues confronting the justice systems are explained and analyzed. Each chapter contains material on government, police, judiciary, law, corrections, juvenile justice, and other critical issues.
