International Criminal Justice: Issues in a Global Perspective
Allyn and Bacon, 2000 - Law - 306 pages
International Criminal Justice examines some of the world's most current and pressing issues in the field. Placing a strong emphasis on improving criminal justice systems, this reader exposes students to other, sometimes novel, ideas to problems of global scope. Each chapter covers one or more issues in criminal justice that cross international boundaries. These articles, however, are selected not from journals, but from leading criminologists currently studying and conducting research in the field. As such, all of the chapters have evolved from previously unpublished research and include topics such as political corruption, state-funded terrorism, and drug trafficking. Chapters cover issues including drugs and policy, domestic violence, nuclear proliferation, money laundering, policing, juvenile delinquency, correctional systems, capital punishment, and gun control policy. For anyone interested in internation criminal justice issues.
