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:

Viewing criminal justice from a global perspective, this enlightening book provides the rationale for studying cross-national issues in criminal justice, and gives readers a knowledge base for understanding and appreciating the different ways justice is conceived and achieved around the world. Takes a topical (rather than country-by-country) approach to comparative criminal justice, organizing each chapter around a classification scheme to provide structure and rationale while discussing how various countries around the world have organized their police, courts, and corrections agencies. Makes constant reference and comparison to American issues and its justice system, and devotes the final chapter to Japan - providing readers with a clear example of how comparative criminal justice can be applied to studying a single country, and the benefits gained by such study. Updates statistics, charts and tables throughout, and now refocuses and streamlines Chapter 6 (The Police), reducing the number of countries covered and adding discussions on police corruption and global cooperation.
