Australian Criminal Justice
Oxford University Press, 1994 - Criminal justice, Administration of - 374 pages
This introductory text provides an overview and critical examination of the Australian criminal justice process. It analyzes the influential matters which mould criminal justice, and examines the institutional and administrative features of its operation in Australian jurisdictions. Particular matters covered by the book include the substantive criminal law, trial procedures, the exercise of discretion and the "sites" of power bases underlying all of these. Both procedural justice in the form of written rules and universally recognised rights and protections, and substantive justice in which common sense notions of fairness and equity are dominant, are the subject of detailed discussion.
