Criminal Justice in England and the United States

Synopsis

Hirschel and Wakefield provide their readers with an informed and interesting view of two criminal justice systems. The discussion revolves around the history and development of the criminal justice systems of England and the United States. The authors draw comparisions between the two with a view toward policy implications for the administration of criminal justice. The discussion includes areas of law enforcement, judicial systems, correctional systems, and ends with an evaluation of the English criminal justice system and lessons for both the United States and England.
