Without assuming prior legal knowledge, books in the Directions series introduce and guide readers through key points of law and legal debate. Questions, diagrams, and exercises help readers to engage fully with each subject and check their understanding as they progress. This chapter explores other offences against property such as robbery, burglary, aggravated burglary, blackmail, handling stolen goods, and criminal damage. The first four of these offences are found in the Theft Act 1968 and criminal damage is found in the Criminal Damage Act 1971. While these offences primarily seek to protect property or economic interests, some also provide protection to the well-being of the individual.
