9781305577381: Criminal Law

Providing the undergraduate criminal law course with a nationally acclaimed blend of analysis and illustrative cases, Joel Samaha's CRIMINAL LAW has been the textbook of choice among instructors for more than 30 years. Praised for his clear, concise, and engaging writing style, Samaha presents criminal law using a combined text/casebook approach that features methodical, careful explanations of traditional law categories as well as classic and contemporary cases. Packed with the latest topics and cases -- and accompanied by powerful teaching and learning resources, including the MindTap online learning platform -- the Twelfth Edition is even more effective in helping students understand and think analytically about the underlying principles and policies that specific cases illustrate.

"I wish my law school textbooks had been this straightforward and clearly written."

"[This book provides] a great balance of black letter law (elements of the crime) and text case study."
