Overview

The third edition of Criminal Law introduces readers to the underlying principles, legal doctrine, and rules of criminal law. The innovative and highly student-friendly text uses real-world case examples to contextualize laws and give students a solid foundation in substantive criminal law while guiding them through what the law is, how it evolved, and the principles on which it is based. By studying case materials, students will develop the analytical skills essential to understanding how legal principles have developed over time and how they are best applied to ever-changing factual situations.

The fully revised and updated Third Edition retains all the extensive pedagogical features of the previous edition—chapter objectives, a glossary of key terms, review questions, and suggested readings—while adding all-new material on moral and state crimes, expanded coverage of terrorism, and a flow chart of the criminal justice system. Students will come away from the text with a greater understanding of how laws are applied, as well as the logic and reasoning behind judicial decisions. Accessible but challenging, Criminal Law, Third Edition will gently push undergraduate and graduate students alike to broaden their analytical approaches.
