9780132392549: Comparative Criminal Justice Systems: A Topical Approach

For courses in Comparative Criminal Justice Systems, Comparative Criminology, and Comparative Government.

 

Unique in its topical approach, this best-selling text examines systems of law, police, courts, and corrections by using more than 30 different countries to show the diversity in legal systems around the world. The book's organization allows instructors to cover the material in a familiar format (law, police, courts and corrections) and helps students understand the various ways policing, adjudication, and corrections systems can be organized and operated. This edition features more complete coverage of Islamic legal tradition, information on reform in Japan, more use of primary sources and updated material throughout.

Review:

"Reichel's book is a highly scholarly, yet readable, introduction to the study of comparative criminal justice systems." ? Allen Anderson, Indiana University - Kokomo

"This text has a great strength in the direct writing and flowing use of language." ? Art Jipson, University of Dayton

"While there are a growing number of texts in this field I have found this text to be the best." ? Mitchel Roth, Sam Houston State University

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.
