Cambridge U. Pr.


775 pages



Cambridge studies in international and comparative law


For lawyers, Delmas-Marty (U. of Paris I) and Spencer (Selwyn College and law, U. of Cambridge) assemble a comparison of common criminal procedures in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, and England and Wales, with 12 chapters on individual countries and essays on positions such as public prosecutor, police, judge, defendant, and victim, and evidence, justice, and the media. The volume is a version of a French study published in 1995 as Procedures penales d'Europe, which came out of research done by a group of international scholars from 1990 to 1994 sponsored by the European Commission to the Association de recherches penales europeennes. The introduction has been expanded and rewritten to suit English speakers.
