A chapter on procedural law statutes encompasses the history of the code of criminal procedure and the special procedure for juvenile offenders.

A chapter is devoted to the organization of the detection and investigation of crime, the organization of the prosecution agency, and the organization of the courts. The victim's role in case processing is also described in this chapter. Remaining chapters address sentencing and the system of sanctions, conditional and/or suspended sentences and probation, the prison system and aftercare for released ex-offenders, reform plans, and statistics and research results on crime and criminal justice. 9 tables and a 7-item bibliography
