Abstract

Dr. Hauser's article points up the difference in approach between the French and the American systems of criminal law administration. This difference in approach, she says, explains why Frenchmen are inclined to think of the United States as a lawless, gangster-ruled country, while Americans are often shocked at what seems to them to be a totalitarian disregard of personal liberty in the actions of the French police.
