COMPARATIVE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEMS is a topical approach to the subject rather than a countryby-country approach. This approach allows the author to explore historical, political, economic, social and cultural influences on various criminal justice systems around the world. The author uses six main countries as "model" countries to give specific examples within each chapter. Every chapter ends with a summary, questions for discussion and suggestions for further reading.
