"In the last two decades courts have been increasingly concerned about the rights of those accused of crime, while legislatures have been devoting more attention to the rights of crime victims and groups, such as women and children, who are disproportionately subject to some crimes. In Due Process and Victims' Rights Kent Roach argues that these concerns have transformed debates about criminal justice. He examines recent cases in which due process and victims' rights have clashed and concludes that, in most instances, victims' rights claims have ultimately prevailed. He concludes that the future of criminal justice will depend on whether victims' rights continue to develop in a punitive fashion or whether they inspire increased emphasis on crime prevention and restorative justice."--Jacket.
