"As in the first edition, Thaman presents a topical approach to the subject, focusing on the roles of public prosecutors, police, victims, and defense attorneys in the investigation of criminal cases and trials up through the judgment phase. Thaman uses high court jurisprudence in English translation to elucidate the European approach to important, and often controversial, areas of criminal procedure, and he also links criminal procedure with its roots in substantive criminal law. Thaman looks at the early reactions to crimes committed flagrantly or in secret as the historical roots of modern criminal procedure. The approaches of the old inquisitorial system and the use of torture to solve circumstantial evidence crimes are also presented.The Second Edition retains the basic content and organization of the original edition. It updates the citations to U.S. Supreme Court cases and to important literature which has appeared in the last six years and refers to some new important cases, primarily in footnotes. Stylistic improvements in the text and the translations have been made and glossary entries (including some Russian terms) have been added."

This Handbook presents innovative research that compares different criminal procedure systems by focusing on the mechanisms by which legal systems seek to avoid error, protect rights, ground their legitimacy, expand lay participation in the criminal process and develop alternatives to criminal trials, such as plea bargaining, as well as alternatives to the criminal process as a whole, such as intelligence operations. The criminal procedures examined in this book include those of the United States, Germany, France, Spain, Russia, India, Latin America, Taiwan and Japan, among others.

"The current globalization of informational access, criminal activity and terrorist interdiction highlights the criminal justice processes in countries around the world. In this emerging global community, comparative analysis of criminal justice is important for gaining an understanding of the complex values that define conceptions of justice across the globe. This book takes a holistic approach to comparative analyses by examining individual processes as a means to highlight differences among systems, while simultaneously exploring and illustrating the historical and procedural contexts that explain why those differences occur."--Résumé de l'éditeur.

This textbook describes analytical tools for studying comparative criminal procedure through film and provides summaries of the law of 50 countries and of over 270 films that depict criminal procedure in action in those countries. The traditional tools of comparative analysis include the inquisitorial-adversarial dichotomy, role-specific constructs and the Civil Law-Common Law dichotomy. In addition, differences in criminal procedure can be examined through the socialist, Islamic and indigenous legal traditions and through the evolving international legal regimes. The tools of comparative legal analysis are applied to examine the adjudicative process through film, beginning with police contact with a crime suspect and ending either with a judge or jury's acquittal or with execution of sentence. The law summaries describe the distinctive criminal procedure of each legal tradition and of each country within those traditions. For each country, the film summaries describe background information about the film and the filmmaker, the plot of the film as a whole and the legal story contained within. The textbook is designed for teaching law students, but is also suitable for teaching an undergraduate or post-graduate college course in comparative criminal justice. About the author: Samuel W. Bettwy is Adjunct Professor of Law at Thomas Jefferson School of Law, where he has taught Comparative Law since 1995. Professor Bettwy received a J.D. from California Western School of Law, an LL.M. in International and Comparative Law from Georgetown University Law Center, and an M.A. in National Security and Strategic Studies, with highest distinction, from the U.S. Naval War College. In 2009, he graduated from the French Army Reserve Staff Officer Course at l'Ecole Militaire in Paris, France. Professor Bettwy has served as a litigating attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice since 1987, practicing in immigration court, U.S. district court, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. He also served as a Judge Advocate in the U.S. Army Reserve from 1987 to 2014, retiring as a lieutenant colonel. Professor Bettwy has written several published articles on comparative law, international law, immigration law, terrorism and film."

In this exciting and topical collection, leading scholars discuss the implications of globalisation for the fields of comparative criminology and criminal justice. How far does it still make sense to distinguish nation states, for example in comparing prison rates? Is globalisation best treated as an inevitable trend or as an interactive process? How can globalisation's effects on space and borders be conceptualised? How does it help to create norms and exceptions? The editor, David Nelken, is a Distinguished Scholar of the American Sociological Association, a recipient of the Sellin-Glueck award of the American Society of Criminology, and an Academician of the Academy of Social Sciences, UK. He teaches a course on Comparative Criminal Justice as Visiting Professor in Criminology at Oxford University's Centre of Criminology.
