DESCRIPTION

Textbook on Criminal Law, now in its twelfth edition, has been providing students of criminal law with a readable and reliable introduction to the subject for the past twenty years. Thorough enough that readers can feel confident in their knowledge, yet concise enough not to overwhelm, this book gets the balance between detail and coverage right. This new edition has been totally updated to include all of the latest case law and statutory changes. The author's lively writing style and forthright attitude to judicial and legal decisions means that the text is an entertaining as well as an accurate read. The text design, and highlighted case fact summaries, questions, examples, and key points ensure that the information provided is broken down and easy to digest and comprehend. Further reading sections provide students with a carefully selected starting point for further research. In short, students at degree level or above, studying criminal law for the first time, should not be without this book. Online Resource Centre - Regular online updates ensure that the book stays current after publication, and an online chapter on Misuse of Drugs Act Offences ensures that the book caters to a wide variety of courses. A bank of over 100 multiple choice questions is also available so students can test their knowledge.
