This text provides a collection of cases, statutory provisions and comments designed to define and illustrate the main principles of criminal law. It should be useful for students of criminal law at degree and professional level. Criminal law is subject to rapid changes, not only through statutory amendment, but also by means of judicial decisions. Judicial activity in the last four years since the last edition has meant the revision of most chapters. Among the major additions to the text are the examination of the issues of necessity and consent in "In re F. (Mental Patient: Sterilisation); Cheshire", in which causation in homicide is examined. Appropriation in theft is dealt with in "Gomez", as is the "mens rea" of an accessory in "Slack". Extracts from the Law Commission's Report and the draft Criminal Code Bill - "A Criminal Code for England and Wales" have been included throughout the text. In addition to the coverage of case law and statutory developments, the authors have included extracts from recently published articles. The collection of materials in this volume have been supplemented by notes and questions designed to assist and to stimulate the student.

XLII, 666 Seiten, Aus dem Klappentext: "This new edition of Elliott and Wood's Casebook on Criminal Law has been largely rewritten and rearranged lo reflect the major changes in the nature of the subject over a period of eight years. Extensive developments in statute and case law are recorded, supplemented by extracts from the work of leading criminal law academics in Britain and overseas. Full consideration is given to Ihe recommendations of the Law Commission on the mental element in crime and the Criminal Law Revision Committee on offences against the person. Treatment of the subject is carefully tailored to the needs of students at both degree and professional examination levels. Chapters dealing with general criminal law principles have undergone fundamental transformation, notably those on mens rea, mental incapacity and defence. Considerable attention has been given to the major decisions since Ihe third edition, for instance Morgan (on mistake), Majewskt (on intoxication), Lynch and Abbott (on duress) and Caldwell (on recklessness). Among the statutes incorporated are the Criminal Law Act 1977, Theft Act 1978 and Criminal Attempts Act 1981. Ready access to important cases and materials is vital to all students of criminal law. Elliott and Wood has always been in the highest rank of major casebooks, and its value is as much in its thought provoking editorial notes as in the comprehensive collection of source materials. This new edition will prove yet again a popular and reliable aid to students through succeeding academic years." - Einband gering berieben. Sonst guter Zustand.
