Review from previous edition This is a scintillating, original, and stimulating book ... Ashworth's book takes a panoramic view. The range of values and principles it discusses is wide ... informative, very well-written, and cogent. Everyone who is interested in criminal procedure should read it (Cambridge Law Journal
[Ashworth] is mindful of the broader social and political issues that surround the criminal justice system, as well as the narrower 'policy' concerns, often of an economic kind, that inform current government thinking. His ability to bring this together is truly impressive ... The Criminal Process is an invaluable analysis of the defects and failures of the pre-trial process with regard to the suspect. It brings together a formindable array of legal and socio-legal materials (Public Law
There has until now been no systematic academic treatment of [the criminal process] in this country. It is this gap that Andrew Ashworth's book seeks to fill, and fills it comprehensively and imaginatively ... Ashworth's argument displays a breathtaking command of the intricacies of criminal justice practices. (Times Higher Education
The Criminal Process is a thought-provoking and academically stimulating text. It is superbly balanced and explains the key principles of the criminal process. It also explores in excellent detail the various arguments for and against them. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone interested in criminal law or criminology (Student Law Journal
Présentation de l'éditeur
The fourth edition of The Criminal Process continues in the tradition of previous editions in providing an insightful and stimulating analysis of the key issues in criminal processes and procedures. Two of the leading figures in the field, Andrew Ashworth and Mike Redmayne, draw on arguments from the law, research, policy, and principle, to present an authoritative overview of this area of study. This edition includes a new chapter on the interface between criminal and civil (preventive) justice, and the addition of questions for discussion and suggested readings at the end of each chapter to facilitate debate and further research.
