From the Publisher:

With a topical, rather than country-by-country approach, this book discusses how various countries around the world have organized police, courts, and corrections agencies. The text provides the rationale for studying other systems of justice and sets down the specific approach to be used.

From the Back Cover:

Since the first edition of this book the topic of comparative and international criminal justice has enjoyed increased attention by authors, journals and professional organizations in criminology and criminal justice. Consistent with these changes, more graduate and undergraduate courses are being taught with comparative issues as the primary subject matter.

New to the Fourth Edition:
  • Chapter Two has been completely restructured to cover the increasing importance of transnational crime.
  • Chapter Three has been greatly expanded to include a section on "liberty, safety, and fighting terrorism"
  • Chapter Eight has been completely revised to provide an emphasis on types of sanctions rather than simply describing prison systems.
Two new pedagogical features have been added:
  • What to Look For: Beginning each chapter are bulleted items that direct the student's attention to the key topics that will be covered in the chapter.
  • Web Projects: these projects are scattered throughout each chapter and can be used as assignments by instructors or simply as interesting sites for students to visit.
