    DescriptionThe fourth edition of Criminal Law: Text, Cases, and Materials offers an exceptional depth of analysis, a wealth of cases and materials all set within the theoretical context of criminal law. The effective two-part structure of each chapter in the book - the first part explaining the law as it is, the second examining the theoretical aspects - ensures that readers not only gain a secure understanding of the law itself but also acquire a fundamental appreciation of the surrounding philosophical and ethical debates. Important theoretical material is made accessible to students through a particularly engaging writing style. The author's clarity of expression brings the subject to life and places the law in context. This text is an essential and complete resource for all those wanting to get to grips with the always fascinating and sometimes challenging area of criminal law today. Online Resource Centre This book is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre, offering detailed updates to the law following publication, useful weblinks, and guidance on answering questions in the book. Video footage of the author talking about the book and his approach to criminal law provides the perfect introduction to your studies.
