    This text was required for my Comparative Justice class. It was interesting reading, comparing the United States legal system with other countries. It's important to understand how other legal systems work so that we can make improvements in our own. Instead of breaking the subject matter down by country its broken down by topic. For example, there is a chapter on juvenile justice and it compares several countries juvenile systems. I ended up doing my term paper on the juvenile system in Saudi This text was required for my Comparative Justice class. It was interesting reading, comparing the United States legal system with other countries. It's important to understand how other legal systems work so that we can make improvements in our own. Instead of breaking the subject matter down by country its broken down by topic. For example, there is a chapter on juvenile justice and it compares several countries juvenile systems. I ended up doing my term paper on the juvenile system in Saudi Arabia. Not pretty. There are other systems that deal with types of legal system (common, civil, socialist, Islamic), types of court proceedings (inquisitorial, adverserial, etc) and a section that discusses the death penalty. There are a ton of interesting boxes throughout with links to extenernal sites with fun and interesting information. I learned a lot from this book and found it to be one of the most enjoyable text book I've had in my major so far.
