In this Third Edition of STATE AND LOCAL POLITICS: INSTITUTIONS AND REFORM, Donovan, Mooney, and Smith go beyond the purely descriptive treatment usually found in state and local texts. Offering an engaging comparative approach, the Third Edition shows students how politics and government differ between states and communities, and points out the causes and effects of those variations. The text also focuses on what social scientists know about the effects of rules and institutions on politics and policy. This comparative, institutional framework enables students to think more analytically about the impact of institutions on policy outcomes, asks them to evaluate the effectiveness of one institutional approach over another, and encourages them to consider more sophisticated solutions. Written by three young, high-profile specialists who have contributed significantly to the field in the last decade, STATE AND LOCAL POLITICS: INSTITUTIONS AND REFORM incorporates the most recent scholarship available into the course, giving students access to perspectives that no other textbook on the market currently provides.

In this book, Erik Luna and Marianne Wade examine the considerable powers of the American prosecutor and look abroad in order to learn valuable lessons from a transnational examination of prosecutorial authority. They explore parallels and distinctions in the processes available to and decisions made by prosecutors in the United States and Europe. Through the varied topics covered by the contributors on both sides of the Atlantic, they demonstrate how the enhanced role of the prosecutor represents a crossroads for criminal justice with weighty legal and socio-economic consequences.

Plea bargaining is one of the most important and most discussed issues in modern criminal procedure law. Based on historical and comparative legal research, the author has analysed the wide-spread use of plea bargaining in different criminal justice systems. The book sets out in-depth studies of consensual case dispositions in the UK, examining how plea bargaining has developed and spread in England and Wales. It also goes on to discusses in detail the problems that this practise poses for the rule of law by avoiding procedural safe-guards. The book draws on empirical research in its examination of the absence of informal settlements in the former GDR, offering a unique insight into criminal procedure in a socialist legal system that has been little studied. Drawing on her research findings, the author goes on to discuss the extent to which plea bargaining should be developed in the International Criminal Court in The Hague, as the question of this practise is set to be one of the seminal debates in the development of international criminal procedures in the new International Criminal Court. Plea Bargaining in National and International Law will be of particular interest to academics and students of international criminal law, criminal procedures and comparative law.

Betrayal of Due Process is a landmark study of the criminal justice systems of two common-law nations, the United States and Canada. By focusing on plea bargaining, which is one of the most dominant practices in the criminal justice system of both countries, Nasheri makes a historical comparison of guilty plea practices and ideologies. She draws on historical, criminological, sociological, and political perspectives to construct her argument. Because plea bargaining is a crucial part of the criminal justice system yet has received little scholarly attention, this much-needed book fills a wide gap in legal scholarship.

Die regelm ige Abk rzung und Vereinfachung eines Strafprozesses durch ein Gest ndnis des Angeklagten, das durch einen zuvor ausgehandelten Strafnachlass angeregt wird, birgt verf hrerische Chancen und t ckische Risiken f r einen Rechtsstaat. Hierzu werden die reichhaltigen Erfahrungen im angels chsischen Strafprozess dargestellt, in dem das Schuldbekenntnis des Angeklagten gegen ber einer aufwendigen Beweisf hrung vor einer Jury von Geschworenen l ngst den Regelfall und nicht mehr die Ausnahme der Prozesserledigung darstellt. Insbesondere wird die (irreversible?) Eigendynamik beleuchtet, die sich mit der Etablierung dieser Prozessgestaltung in Australien, England und den USA entwickelt hat. Diese Erkenntnisse werden mit Blick auf den deutschen Strafprozess, der in j ngerer Zeit eine zunehmende Absprachepraxis erf hrt, einer kritischen W rdigung unterzogen. The regular shortening and easement of a criminal trial by a plea of guilty of the defendant induced by a bargained sentence discount implies seductive chances and tricky risks as measured by the rule of law. For this it is drawn from the comprehensive experiences in the Anglo-Saxon criminal process, where a plea of guilty has become the rule and no more the exception for the handling of criminal trials. A special focus is laid on the (irreversible?) momentum which has come along with the establishment of this practice in Australia, the UK and the USA. These findings are scrutinized with regard to the increasing practice of agreements in the German criminal trial.
