Bestselling COMPARATIVE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEMS, 4/e delivers a comprehensive--and intriguing--analysis comparing the various criminal justice systems throughout the world. Thoroughly revised and up to date, the Fourth Edition reflects the latest trends, issues, and information on international criminal justice, transnational organized crime and corruption, terrorism, and international juvenile justice. This proven text's unique topical approach examines important aspects of each type of justice system--common law, civil law, socialist law, and sacred (Islamic) law--which gives students a more solid understanding of the similarities and differences of each system. The authors use six model countries--China, England, France, Germany, Japan, Saudi Arabia--to illustrate the different types of law and justice systems in the context of specific countries, as well as the historical, political, economic, social, and cultural influences on each system. The book is packed with relevant examples, emphasizes critical thinking skills throughout, and includes an assortment of innovative learning tools to maximize student success.

Excellent book. I had to read this for a graduate class. The authors provide an array of information from various nations (six model countries) and make comparisons to that of the U.S. This is a must read if you wish to understand how cultural variables and history play a role in the creation and implementation of criminal justice systems of those nations.
