Policing a Socialist Society: The German Democratic Republic

Synopsis

What was it like to live under the police and a criminal justice system in a socialist society and in a country governed by Marxist-Leninists? This is the first book-length study of criminal justice in the German Democratic Republic. Based on first-hand research conducted since 1985, the case study shows how principles of criminal justice and methods of governance have changed since 1989--with the dissolution of the GDR and its incorporation into the Federal Republic of Germany. It reports on the work of the People's Police and the State Security Police and how principles of criminal justice and methods of governance changed with the dissolution of the GDR.
