Devine argues persuasively for alternatives to the American commercial bail bonding system in this comprehensive, international comparison of bail. He shows how 15 countries of common-law heritage condemn the American approach to pre-trial release and have developed effective alternatives. The only comparative analysis of its kind, this book is valuable to scholars of criminal justice, criminology, comparative law, political science, and sociology, as well as to criminal justice reformers and professionals.
