Considerably expanded and updated, the third edition of this textbook provides a readable and comprehensive introduction to criminal law for undergraduate students. Through the media coverage of high-profile trials we all feel that we know something about criminal law, and this edition uses such cases to create a real interest and involvement on the part of the student. New features to this edition are "key words" sections and "hot topics" which explore the legal issues behind some high-profile and controversial cases. A new chapter examines in detail the impact of the Human Rights Act, and new sections discuss racially motivated crime and the Protection from Harassment Act.
