Mühlhahn offers a comprehensive examination of the criminal justice system in modern China, an institution deeply rooted in politics, society, and culture. Based on unprecedented research in Chinese archives and incorporating prisoner testimonies, witness reports, and interviews, this book is essential reading for understanding modern China. This book illustrates - through the analysis of more than two hundred criminal cases selected from Minzhu yu fazhi (Democracy and the Legal System) in the period - that the establishment of a formal criminal justice system and the development of an embryonic socialist theory of law in China reflect a genuine and widespread legal awakening.

The book is the first English-language edited collection on China’s death penalty, and contains contributions from both Chinese and Western(ized) scholars. There are, of course, a range of monographs and scholarly articles containing in-depth examinations of many of the subjects covered by contributors to this volume.   China has been undergoing mass reform of its laws and legal system since For a very useful introduction to the evolution of law reform in China, together with detailed information about reform in specific areas, such as the Constitution, criminal process, courts, administrative law, the legislature, the legal profession and extra-judicial dispute resolution, see:Author: Robin Gardner.

  This comprehensive study examines the development and changing characteristics of the judicial system and reform process over the past three decades in China. As the role of courts in society has increased so too has the amount of Cited by: 8.   The Death Penalty in China is required reading for anyone desiring to keep abreast of China's evolving legal landscape, criminal justice reform, and perplexing human rights environment. Highly recommended. Andrew Scobell, coauthor of China's Search for Security.
