In recent years law, crime and justice have become increasingly politicised in Hong Kong. Understanding Criminal Justice in Hong Kong, 2nd Edition offers a detailed and comprehensive overview of and introduction to the criminal justice system in Hong Kong, building upon recent events and controversies.

This book provides a much-needed overview of the criminal justice system in Hong Kong, including new chapters on criminological research methods, defining crime, fear of crime, the criminal court system, police power and discretion, and plea bargaining. This revised and expanded second edition:

  • Outlines the basic concepts of criminal law in Hong Kong,
  • Analyses the process of the criminal justice system, ranging from the reporting of a crime through to the correctional system,
  • Examines how criminal justice personnel work in practice, and how they deal with the offenders and victims during the criminal justice process,
  • Invites readers to consider arguments and debates that surround the controversial issues in the Hong Kong criminal justice system.

This book is a comprehensive resource for students studying this subject as part of a wider course in criminal justice, police studies, law or social work, and for practitioners working in Hong Kong in the police, prisons, probation, voluntary agencies and other criminal justice personnel. Text features include review questions, lists of cases cited, and useful websites.

Review:

"Different regions need to explore their own understandings of crime and justice. In doing so, this book draws on an impressive range of contributors to provide an important overview of our understanding of criminalisation, the changing activities of criminal justice agencies and public responses to crime and justice at a key moment in the history of Hong Kong."

Mark Israel, Professor of Law and Criminology, University of Western Australia

"Informed by the latest research in the field, the editors and contributing authors help readers navigate some of the profound changes and challenges in the criminal law and processes of criminal justice in Hong Kong over the last decade or so. The book includes some important contributions relating to recent civil protests and the ‘Occupy Central’ movement, and offers some critical insights into power relations and the changing landscape of criminal justice. The book will serve as a comprehensive resource for students in a wide range of criminal justice, social work and related courses."

Loraine Gelsthorpe, Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Deputy Director, Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge

"I found the second edition of Understanding Criminal Justice in Hong Kong well researched and updated to the date of print. A most comprehensive text for anyone interested in Hong Kong 's criminal justice system."

Dr Samson Chan, CSDSM, CSMSM, Honorary Lecturer at the Department of Sociology, University of Hong Kong
