The fifth edition of this best-selling book has been thoroughly revised to take into account recent

developments in the law in criminal practice and procedure across the region. As the only

textbook to explore criminal practice and procedure as it relates to the Commonwealth

Caribbean, the book clarifies the state law in each of 11 jurisdictions, while at the same time

making it clear when laws are the same or similar and highlighting where differences among

jurisdictions occur.

Both statute law and common law are examined in the relevant jurisdictions, which include

Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica and Grenada amongst others. The impact

of statutory changes in the laws are analysed, as well as recent developments in the common

law. Throughout the text the statutory law in the Commonwealth Caribbean is compared with

similar English legislation, in light of the analysis of such legislation in English case law.

This book is the recommended textbook for all professional law schools in the Commonwealth

Caribbean and is used at regional universities as a reference book for criminal justice

students. In addition, as the only book that deals specifically with criminal practice and

procedure in the regions, it has proved a valuable reference tool for legal practitioners,

judicial officers and police officers.
