Criminal law is a subject of great complexity which students find both fascinating and frustrating. The complexity is in large part caused by the uncertainty created by the courts, who fail to understand or adhere to fundamental principles.

Criminal law is a subject of great complexity which students find both fascinating and frustrating. Traditionally, textbooks contain more detail than students require and may themselves add to this confusion. This book states clearly both the principles fundamental tpo criminal liability, and the current state of the law in the areas covered by most criminal law courses. In addition, it highlights those areas where there is confusion, helping students to meet the intellectual challenge which criminal law presents, and to negotiate those areas where frustration might creep in.

This edition has been revised throughout to incorporate recent statutory developments, such as:

the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994, the Criminal Justice Act 1993 and the Sexual Offences Act 1993

and important decisions, such as those of the House of Lords in "Brown" on consent, "Kingston" on involuntary intoxication, "Adomako" on manslaughter and "C v DPP" on the criminal capacity of children, and those of the Court of Appeal in "Scarlett" on self-defence and "Attorney-General's References Nos 1 and 3 of 1992" on attempt.

Michael J. Allen is the co-author of "Elliott and Wood's Casebook on Criminal Law", "Sentencing Law and Practice" and "Cases and Materials on Constitutional and Administrative Law".
