Description

This title was first published in 2000: This text tackles the issues raised by comparative research into criminal justice on other cultures. How far does criminal justice reflect general culture? Can collaborative research overcome the problem of translating incommensurable concepts? What are the possibilities for "virtual comparisons"? How do we tell difference? The authors, drawn from a range of countries, offer reflections on international differences in the process of trial and punishment.
