Abstract

and Keidanren and labor unions (Hasegawa Harukiyo) and should be valued for this contribution alone. Patricia Steinhoff's chapter on boundary change in the criminal justice system stands out for both its substantive and theoretical contributions. Steinhoff considers how a variety of external and internal forces have interacted to shift the boundaries of the criminal justice system. This chapter develops two fascinating case studies to show how complex interactions among global initiatives, international norms, and bureaucratic, political, and social movement-driven pressures have enhanced the rights of crime victims and their families and have extended the reach of the criminal justice system internationally. Quite strikingly, the boundary shifts do not favor the accused. This chapter also expands the analysis of relevant actors by considering two distinct social movements influencing criminal justice boundaries: New Left protest movements on the one side and neoliberal and neoconservative civil society organizations on the other. The case study approach nicely illustrates many of the key dynamics at play, and the conclusion explicitly addresses what the boundary change that has resulted looks like. Finally, a concluding chapter would greatly enhance the book's overall contribution. The absence of a conclusion marks a missed opportunity for developing connections,
