Overview


Offering a unique modified case approach, Criminal Law, Ninth Edition, uses a wide sampling of federal and state statutes and cases to provide students with a comprehensive and contemporary introduction to the field.

Leading scholar and bestselling author Sue Titus Reid employs a student-friendly and engaging writing style, eliminating complicated legal jargon from case excerpts while addressing timely, provocative issues. By employing carefully excerpted court opinions and cases to illustrate important points, Reid gives students a taste of traditional case method without burdening them with massive amounts of legal material. She also weaves appellate court cases into each chapter--many of which focus on current events--in order to familiarize students with how the judiciary thinks about and responds to questions of law.

The book is enhanced by a variety of pedagogical tools:

* "Focus" boxes present recent examples of crimes and criminals, statutes, and appellate opinions
* Figures, graphs, tables, and charts maintain student focus while relating general principles and laws to current events
* Helpful learning and review tools--chapter outlines, case excerpts and analyses, bolded key terms, chapter summaries, study questions, and more--allow students to master content and prepare for exams
* "For Debate" sections about controversial issues provoke lively class discussions
* Internet Activities invite students to continue exploring the subject online

An incisive, authoritative introduction to the field, Criminal Law, Ninth Edition, is ideal for undergraduate courses in criminal law.

NEW TO THIS EDITION

Updated discussions of the most recent current events and the latest court decisions (especially those of the U.S. Supreme Court--including the ruling that life without parole for juveniles convicted of a non-homicide offense is cruel and unusual punishment and thus unconstitutional)

New examples including the Casey Anthony trial, the Dr. Conrad Murray trial, the Arizona sweat lodge case, and the Arizona immigration statute

A greater emphasis on drugs, with expanded coverage of prescription drug abuse, the Fair Sentencing Act, and decriminalizing the possession of small amounts of marijuanaterrorism as it relates to U.S. criminal law

A new section on bullying

Streamlined coverage of defenses--now in a single chapter

SUPPLEMENTS

Instructor's Manual on CD (available to adopting instructors): Includes chapter outlines, key terms, chapter overviews, questions for discussion, a complete test bank with multiple-choice and essay questions, and new PowerPoint-based lecture slides

Companion Website (www.oup.com/us/reid): Contains a downloadable Student Study Guide with chapter outlines; key terms; chapter overviews; student learning objectives; review questions; and multiple-choice, fill-in-the-blank, and short-answer questions
