Product description

Australian Criminal Justice 3e provides a clear overview and critical examination of the Australian criminal justice process. Fully updated and revised, the third edition of this leading text analyses the influences that mould criminal justice and examines the institutional and administrative features of its operation in Australian jurisdictions. The book includes topical coverage of the continued reduction of individual rights and judicial power for the sake of community protection, Australia's place in recent developments in International Criminal Justice, and the new investigative bodies formed to fight terrorism and people smuggling. It begins with the theory and basic elements of the criminal law then guides readers chronologically through the stages of a case: investigation, pretrial decision making, trial, evidence, sentencing, punishment and penalty, and appeal. The final chapter persuasively reveals the flaws in the Australian system, through the examination of groups who experience discrimination in the criminal justice system.
