Criminal Case Dispositions Through Pleas in Greater China: Conception, Operation and Contradiction

Enshen Li

This book investigates the policy implications, discursive ethos and practical realities of plea-based case dispositions in the criminal justice system of four Chinese-speaking jurisdictions, including Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau. It aims to provide fresh and cutting-edge insights into important legal, social and cultural issues found throughout plea-based case dispositions in Greater China, but in a geographically specific manner - providing an in-depth view of issues that can help forge connections and inspire creative solutions for scholars gaining understanding of common problems across the societies in question. The book includes an introduction and conclusion with 9 chapters. Based on a diverse range of first-hand data and secondary sources of information, topics covered in the chapters represent multiangle perspectives and analysis that help to construct a sophisticated, intricate and evidence-based portrait of locally informed approaches to case disposition through pleas in Chinese-speaking societies.
