2nd ed, OUP 2010. ISBN: 0-19-876497-9

A sense of crisis in the administration of justice has been present in many countries. Delays and high costs render access to the civil courts either useless or prohibitively expensive or both in numerous judrisdictions. The essays included in this collection survey different systems of civil justice and provide information and analysis that should enrich the reform debates that take place in many countries by drawing attention to common problems, to their roots, to the solutions tried, and above all to the consequences of reform. The essays show that we can learn from others' success and find their failures even more instructive.

OUP 1989, ISBN: 0-19-876103-1
The exposition of the law of criminal evidence proceeds on the premiss that the law of criminal evidence has a cohesiveness of principle that requires distinct treatment. Like any other procedure for the determination of truth about past events, it has to be evaluated by reference to its structure, to its aims und to its underlying general principles. The crimina process for establishing guilt is governed by three main objectives: the determination of truth, the protection of the innocent from conviction, and need to maintain adequate standards of propriety in the administration of criminal justice. The continual serch for a satisfactory balance between these three goal is the central theme of the book, which shows how each and every rule of evidence is shaped by these goals.
