History, Process and Case Studies
By: Raneta Lawson Mack
This work takes readers one step further than other texts on the market.

This work, on the other hand, forgoes a reform-oriented analysis in favor of clarifying the criminal process in other countries, as they exist today. Professor Mack provides readers with case studies documenting how the processes actually unfold within five other jurisdictions: France, Russia, Spain, Germany, and England.
Comparative Criminal Procedure has three primary functions:
  • Offer readers a deeper look into criminal procedure
  • Address the features of the criminal justice system post-September 11,

Readings on the Influence of Christian Thought in Anglo-American Law
Second Edition

The common law formed the legal system that for more than 800 years defined and governed most legal rights and duties of citizens in England and later in the United States. This work tells the story of the development and evolution of the common law in our society. This second edition is designed to further the quest to look beyond legal rules and institutions to the legal philosophies that shaped them. The overall purpose of this work remains unchanged from the first edition. It does, however, reflect some important changes and updates in the content.

Law, Reality and Society
Second Enlarged Edition
By: Alan Watson

This book does not deal with conventional comparative law. Rules and structures of one system are not set out against those of another for contrast. Rather, rules particular and general are examined to explain why they are as they are, and how they came to be. The author does not accept the supposition that, to a great extent, law reflects society or the power of the ruling elite. Chapters range from grand legislation to unrecognized law in action and daily life. This work will enhance any comparative law collection!
