Australian Criminal Justice 4th edition provides a complete overview of the criminal justice process. It analyses the influences that shape criminal justice and examines the institutional and administrative features of its operation in all jurisdictions. Building on the rights theme of previous editions, this fourth edition more clearly highlights and discusses the "justice for all" theme present in international conventions and in the core principles of criminal justice. The authors also examine the derogation of a number of these principles - in particular, the erosion of individual right protection and due process, and conditions of criminal justice which require the recognition of fundamental presumptions in the defendant's favour. Features: A fresh design and layout makes the text more accessible for students. Case studies and their accompanying explanations demonstrate how the subject material relates to the students. A new 'flashpoints' section draws together the key themes of each chapter and provides a series of questions to inspire critical engagement and discussion. Comes with free 6 month access to Oxford Bibliographies Online: Criminology.
