It contains eighteen comparative studies on criminal justice inthe Netherlands, England, and Wales, concentrating on the central themes of the convergence of the adversarial - British - and inquisitorial - Dutch - system of justice and the increasing `Europeanization' of each by an ever-increasing body of European law.
