This is the first textbook to deal with criminal practice and procedure as it relates to the Caribbean. The text clarifies the state law in each jurisdiction, making it clear when laws are the same or similar and statutory law in the Caribbean is compared to English Law throughout. Statute law and common law are examined in the relevant jurisdictions including Trinidad, Tobago, Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica and Grenada among others. Although the laws of each jurisdiction have many things in common, Seetahal makes it clear when differences in laws between the jurisdictions apply. The impact of statutory changes are also analyzed alongside recent developments. Revised throughout, this new edition addresses the recent changes in law in St Lucia and the Bahamas bringing this popular text right up-to-date. Although written for law students, as the only book which deals specifically with criminal practice and procedure in the Caribbean, it is also a useful reference tool for criminal justice professionals.

This is the first book of its kind in the Commonwealth Caribbean on Criminal Procedure. Furthermore it is written by someone who has over twenty years experience in the field: as a prosecutor for over a dozen years,as a magistrate, as a criminologist, a criminal justice consultant and finally as a law school lecturer. This book fills a lacuna in Commonwealth Caribbean jurisprudence in that there is currently no local or regional text on criminal practice and procedure. For too long students and practitioners have had to waste time to wade through English and other text in areas that are not even relevant in order to determine their application to these jurisdictions. The book provides a useful reference to clarify what the state of the statutory law is in the Caribbean when compared to similar areas in English law and to discuss the relevant statute and common law in specific areas. It is a text useful not only for law school students but criminal justice professionals such as lawyers and police officers as well. The content of the book includes both the statute law and common law on criminal practice and procedure in most of the relevant jurisdictions, which include Trinidad Tobago, Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica and Grenada among others. Where the law is the same or similar in some jurisdictions this is emphasised in the text so as to avoid unnecessary repetition in discussion. Attempts will be made to identify specific differences in the laws of different jurisdictions despite their being many commonalities. Recent developments in these areas are also discussed and the impact of the statutory changes in some countries is assessed.

Henry Kissinger über die größte Herausforderung des 21. Jahrhunderts Hat das westlich geprägte Wertesystem im 21. Jahrhundert angesichts aufstrebender Mächte mit gänzlich anderem Menschenbild und Gesellschaftskonzept als Basis einer Frieden stiftenden Weltordnung ausgedient? Henry Kissinger, über Jahrzehnte zentrale Figur der US-Außenpolitik und Autorität für Fragen der internationalen Beziehungen, sieht unsere Epoche vor existenziellen Herausforderungen angesichts zunehmender Spannungen. In der heutigen global eng vernetzten Welt wäre eine Ordnung vonnöten, die von Menschen unterschiedlicher Kultur, Geschichte und Tradition akzeptiert wird und auf einem Regelwerk beruht, das in der Lage ist, regionale wie globale Kriege einzudämmen. Der Autor analysiert die Entstehung der unterschiedlichen Ordnungssysteme etwa in China, den islamischen Ländern oder im Westen und unternimmt den Versuch, das Trennende zwischen ihnen zusammenzuführen und den Grundstein für eine zukünftige friedliche Weltordnung zu legen.
