Product Description

This Criminal Law casebook offers both theoretical and practical treatment of criminal law, which helps students understand the underlying principles while being able to relate them to real-life situations. This casebook introduces students to the criminal justice system, raises the question of why and how we punish, and provides a framework for classroom discussion of the relationship between the state and the individual.

This casebook covers a broad range of criminal law topics including many cutting-edge issues such as entrapment, assisted suicide, conspiracy and multiple defendants, rape (including date rape and marital rape), attempted murder based on biting/spitting by AIDS patient, and the battered victim syndrome.

Unlike many other casebooks which merely cite the Model Penal Code, Criminal Law discusses various state statutes, helping students to understand how similar crimes are treated in different jurisdictions. In addition, this book does contain numerous references throughout to the Model Penal Code and the various other proposed codes.

The extent of editing of cases varies according to the principles being highlighted. Some cases that focus entirely on a particular issue are reproduced in full, while other cases are heavily edited in order to emphasize the key questions raised. This highly-focused approach makes the cases, and principles they illustrate, easier for students to comprehend. Criminal Law is a traditional casebook which contains introductory text and accompanying notes, comments, and questions. The "case and commentary" method, combined with numerous real-life problems, provide a broad basis for analysis and discussion of criminal law topics.
