Clear, concise, and cutting edge, Joel Samaha's best-selling CRIMINAL LAW, 10e helps you apply criminal law's enduring foundations and principles to fascinating court cases and specific crimes. With a balanced blend of case excerpts and author commentary, Samaha guides you as you sharpen your critical thinking and legal analysis skills. You'll see the principles, defenses, and elements of crime at work as you progress through the book—and you'll learn about the general principles of criminal liability and its defenses, as well as the elements of crimes against persons, property, society, and the state.
This text/CD-ROM package explains general principles and their application to specific crimes, and presents cases that apply general principles to facts. Chapters follow a traditional arrangement, with the first eight chapters covering general criminal law, and later chapters covering the law in homicide, kidnapping, burglary and arson, property crimes, and quality of life crimes. This seventh edition contains 39 new cases, and "whatever happened to" boxes on victims and criminals in famous cases. The CD-ROM contains links to complete, unedited versions of cases discussed in the book, links to the US and state constitutions, criminal codes, and US Supreme Court opinions, and Internet research questions. The author teaches criminal law at the University of Minnesota. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
