9780820570815: Criminal Law: Cases and Materials

In addition to offering a comprehensive survey of the major concepts and doctrines in criminal law, a unique feature of this book are the many provocative and teachable case selections used to illustrate major concepts. The facts of virtually every case lend themselves to creative teaching and will stick in the memories of both instructor and students. Meanwhile, lucidly organized notes following the cases deliver both doctrine and interesting tangents with clarity and brevity.



The new edition also incorporates the most recent significant cases and scholarship, including recent application of traditional criminal law concepts in more complex ""modern"" contexts such as white collar crime. Special features of the book include:



  •   The authors introduce and employ theoretical perspectives in a clear and accessible way. These materials encourage students to understand and apply various approaches to criminal law issues, including liberalism, feminism, critical race theory, and the rights of victims.
  •   Like its predecessor, this edition has uniquely detailed and inclusive coverage of modern day property crimes, and reflects sophisticated contemporary thinking about homicide and rape
  •   The book's extensive treatment of recent white collar corporate prosecutions allows full consideration of controversies where traditional criminal law concepts are also being applied to civil and corporate disputes.

  •   The cases and commentaries promote a clear and thorough presentation of causation, the crime of attempt, group criminality, and defenses.

  •   The authors draw attention to the intersection of civil and criminal liability, encouraging students to consider the differences between criminal law and other types of legal regulation.
  • "synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
