The Theory and Practice of Criminal Justice in Africa

"In this monograph, four eminent critics and researchers examine the theory and practice of criminal justice in Africa.This monograph provides us with an important opportunity to engage in the debate through exploring various themes on the expression of democracy and justice through the workings of criminal justice systems of some countries in Africa. Etannibi Alemika sets out the sources of criminal law in precise detail by drawing attention to the norms, politics, institutions, processes and constraints in the pursuit of criminal justice. Criminal justice is the handmaiden of politics and he makes it clear that politics determines the administration of criminal justice."
