Criminal justice in Greenland / Henrik Garlik Jensen.

Title: Criminal justice in Greenland / Henrik Garlik Jensen.
Author(s): Jensen, Henrik Garlik.
Date: 1996.
Publisher: Burnaby, BC, Canada: Simon Fraser University
Abstract: After brief summary of Greenland history, and longer one of history of Greenland law, book concentrates on present legal system, its supposed cultural basis, sentencing policy, lack of resources for probation or secure prison (and their constraints in terms of resources), and public feeling about sentencing. Where court practice is unrealistic, author believes "noble savage" concept is to blame. Interview with Greenlandic magistrate Abraham Svendsen covers some of these topics from native viewpoint.
