New to This Edition

The second edition of Comparative Criminal Procedure contains the most up-to-date statutory material from England, France and Germany in a variety of areas and more condensed versions of cases from the European Court of Human Rights to maintain focus on the core aspects of those opinions.

Citizens of one country might find themselves being prosecuted in another country for conduct committed within that country’s borders.
