Australian Criminal Justice provides a complete overview of the criminal justice process. It analyzes the influences that shape criminal justice and examines the institutional and administrative features of its operation in all jurisdictions.

Building on the rights theme of previous editions, this fourth edition more clearly highlights and discusses the "justice for all" theme present in international conventions and in the core principles of criminal justice. The authors also examine the derogation of a number of these principles--in particular, the erosion of individual right protection and due process, and conditions of criminal justice which require the recognition of fundamental presumptions in the defendant's favor.
