Principles of Criminal Law is distinctly different from other criminal law textbooks on the market. Focussing on the theoretical issues and underlying principles, it brings the subject to life through a critically involving and contextual approach, enabling readers to engage with the subject at a sophisticated and detailed level.
Principles of Criminal Law, now in its sixth edition, takes a distinctly different approach to the study of criminal law, whilst still covering all of the vital topics found on criminal law courses. Uniquely theoretical, it seeks to elucidate the underlying principles and theoretical foundations of the criminal law, and aims to critically engage readers by contextualising and analysing the law. This edition continues to fulfil this remit, whilst incorporating all of the most recent developments, such as the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007, the Serious Crime Act 2007, the Law Commission report on murder, the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008, and the Fraud Act 2006. This is essential reading for students seeking a sophisticated and critically engaging exploration of the subject.
