Featuring a pragmatic approach to coping with the legal complications surrounding pretrial release, drug-related crime, and freedom of religion, among other issues, this timely reference presents a host of legal policy problems in diverse political and cultural settings throughout the world. Contributors bridge the academic gulf between worldwide and public policy studies, as well as the ideological gap between liberal and conservative attitudes toward constitutional law, individual liberty, public safety, and human rights. The authors emphasize the need for an integrated, "one-world" perspective in the international legal community, drawing on over 1200 references, tables, and illustrations.
