The Structure of Criminal Procedure presents, for the first time ever, a detailed comparison of the criminal procedures of four major nations--France, the United States, China, and the Soviet Union. In addition, the author also develops his theory on the "Morphology of Criminal Procedure" which hypothesizes that there is a common structure in every modern procedural system no matter how different it may appear on the surface. He stresses six basic functions inherent in all systems--arrest and trial, detention, screening, charging and defending, trial, sanctioning, and appeal--and he successively analyzes each of them in depth. Practical ways to apply his model are provided along with encouragement for others to engage in new comparative studies, or studies of individual systems, in order to clarify the ways in which the practical demands of society, the legal profession, and legal institutions interact with the functional needs of the system to produce new ways of procedure or new ways of using old procedures.
