Clear, concise, and cutting edge, Joel Samaha's best-selling CRIMINAL LAW, 11th Edition 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, the author guides you as you sharpen your critical thinking and legal analysis skills. As you progress through the book, 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. You'll also see these principles at work in the cases and crimes that illustrate them. Available with InfoTrac Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.
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)
