"Crime and Punishment Around the World assembles valuable facts and perspectives about an important topic in a useful and easy-to-use reference. The editors and contributors are to be congratulated for creating a unique single source that gathers together and provides this information. The entries are substantial enough to stand on their own as well as offer a basis for country comparisons. Students studying the current state of international crime and punishment as well as those looking for information on specific countries will find this set of value. It also offers specific information that can be used to supplement an overall country or area study. This set will be a valuable addition for most undergraduate and community college libraries supporting criminal justice and related programs." - Against the Grain "A handy compilation of country-specific information... Academic, law, and special libraries with comprehensive criminal-justice collections may want to purchase this set." - BooklistFrom the Publisher:
It is a subject as old as civil society, yet one that still fuels debate. Now the many and varied aspects of that subject are brought together in the four-volume Crime and Punishment around the World. This unprecedented work provides descriptions of crimes-and the justice systems that define and punish them-in more than 200 nations, principalities, and dependencies. Each chapter examines the historical, political, and cultural background, as well as the basic organization of the subject state's legal and criminal justice system. It also reports on the types and levels of crime, the processes leading to the finding of guilt, the rights of the accused, alternatives to going to trial, how suspects are prosecuted for their crimes, and the techniques and conditions of typical punishments employed. Comprising a study that is at once extraordinarily comprehensive and minutely detailed, the essays collected here showcase the variety and the universality of crime and punishment the world over.
