Criminal Law, Third Edition is an exceptionally up-to-date and comprehensive text written by an author who was trained in social science as well as law and has taught in both areas. Using a modified case approach (i.e., integrating selected case excerpts with text coverage), this book presents all the subjects traditionally taught in introductory criminal law, including topics not covered by all texts in this field--such as misdemeanors, organized crime, drugs, defenses (post-traumatic stress syndrome and battered persons syndrome among them), hate crimes, and treason, obstruction of justice, and other offenses. It includes discussions of common law, federal law, the Model Penal Code and some state statutes. This meticulous revision incorporates the very latest data available, new cases including 1994 decisions, and such recent developments as the Florida tourism murders, changes in gun law, and the proposed 1994 anti-crime legislation.About the Author:
