Mastering Criminal Law provides a clear and concise consideration of the fundamental structure of a crime, including statutory interpretation and sentencing. It has chapters on the typical crimes covered in most criminal law casebooks, namely homicide, rape, assault and battery, and theft. It extends the study to newer forms of crimes, such as criminal enterprises, and includes chapters on accomplice liability, solicitation, attempt and conspiracy. The book covers the traditional defenses seen in criminal law courses and also examines the concept of what is a defense. Cultural defenses and the right to present a defense are included. Many factual examples come from real-world cases. The learning tools used throughout the book provide an overview of the subject, reinforcement of basic principles, and a better understanding of criminal law principles.
This book is part of the Carolina Academic Press Mastering Series edited by Russell L. Weaver, University of Louisville School of Law.
