Synopsis:
Criminal Law, Ninth Edition, provides an introduction to criminal law that combines the best features of a traditional law casebook and a textbook-it explains the law while giving students a chance to read cases. The present edition includes several new cases to illustrate current issues or to replace existing cases representing traditional elements. Supreme Court cases are used to simplify the jurisdictional impact of the case. "Legal News” boxes have been added to illustrate legal concepts and their application in "real life.” Some materials have been expanded, such as wiretapping and computer crimes, including child pornography; others have been shortened or combined with existing sections to accommodate new material.
The book is organized into two parts. Part I discusses the definitions of crime and criminal law, principles of criminal liability, capacity and defenses, preparatory activity crimes, offenses against persons and property, obtaining property by false pretenses, theft, forgery and other fraud offenses, offenses involving morality and decency, offenses against justice administration, and certain aspects of federal criminal law. Each chapter includes a chapter outline, key terms, and concepts. Part II provides judicial decisions relating to Part I.
  • Each chapter includes outline, key terms and concepts, guiudance to help the reader understand what is important in each chapter, as well as a new Legal News section that highlights current criminal law issues.
  • Part II contains briefs of judicial decisions related to the topics covered in the the text, in order to help the reader learn rule of law as well as the reasoning of the court that guides future court ruilngs.
  • Part III contains the Constitution of the United States of America, a Glossary and a Table of Cases.

Review:

Combining the best features of a casebook and a textbook, this classic text deals with substantive criminal law, and explores the principles, sources, distinctions and limitations of criminal law. Definitions and elements of crimes are explained, and defenses to crimes are thoroughly analyzed. Strengths continue to be the comprehensive footnotes, coverage of the federal criminal code, and specific recognition of the common law origins of modern law. Federal law coverage is now consolidated into two chapters.

Each chapter contains a list of key terms that are defined in the glossary, guidance to help the student understand what is important in each chapter, as well as a new Legal News section that highlights current criminal law issues. Part II gives students the opportunity to read real cases, with aids to help them identify the issues and holdings.

  • Each chapter includes outline, key terms and concepts, guiudance to help the reader understand what is important in each chapter, as well as a new Legal News section that highlights current criminal law issues.
  • Part II contains briefs of judicial decisions related to the topics covered in the the text, in order to help the reader learn rule of law as well as the reasoning of the court that guides future court ruilngs.
  • Part III contains the Constitution of the United States of America, a Glossary and a Table of Cases.
