Overview

This classic introduction to criminal law for criminal justice students combines the best features of a casebook and a textbook. Criminal Law covers substantive criminal law and explores its principles, sources, distinctions, and limitations. Definitions and elements of crimes are explained, and defenses to crimes are thoroughly analyzed. Strengths continue to be the coverage of the federal criminal code and specific recognition of the common law origins of modern law. New to this edition is expanded coverage of terrorism and associated law.

Each chapter includes guidance to help students understand what is important: outlines, key terms and concepts, as well as Legal News sections that highlight current criminal law issues. Part II contains briefs of judicial decisions related to the topics covered in the text. These briefs help students learn rule of law as well as the reasoning of the court that guides future court rulings. Part III contains a glossary and a table of cases.

New features of this edition include:

  • Coverage of terrorism and associated law, including the USA Patriot Act.
  • Streamlined coverage of federal law.
  • Revised and updated throughout to include recent Supreme Court cases.
