“There is no question that the book is very well researched and the authors have done an excellent job of bringing new insights and new perspectives to the topic.”
“Any analysis of global justice which moves from circumspection about traditions of comparative criminal justice and transnational criminology is to be much welcomed. Similarly to indicting the present era of globalisation as it destroys the prevailing global economic model, a cross-cultural analysis of crime and justice themes reveals that global justice as a hegemonic exercise. It need not be so.
“With this volume, Cyndi Banks and James Baker add a well-organized and intelligently written text to the field of criminology and criminal justice education... Students have much to gain from this volume. Even those interested primarily in crime and criminal justice in the United States (or in any other country) will understand that the knowledge they acquire is inadequate if it neglects the global contexts in which crime and criminal justice are embedded."
Outstanding book. I adopted for online and f2f teaching. Covers systems of legal tradition well. Includes Indigenous law.
