This edition of Criminal Law: Text, Cases, and Materials offers an exceptional depth of analysis and a wealth of cases and materials all set within the theoretical context of criminal law. The two-part structure of each chapter in the book—the first part explaining the law as it is, the second examining the theoretical aspects—ensures that readers not only gain a secure understanding of the law itself but also acquire a fundamental appreciation of the surrounding philosophical and ethical debates. The book looks at actus reus and mens rea, and strict liability, and also examines homicide, non-fatal non-sexual offences, sexual offences, theft, handling, robbery, and fraud. It further analyses issues relating to burglary and blackmail, criminal damages, and defences, and finally, considers criminal liability of corporations, inchoate offences, and complicity.
