This book is the first to frame federal criminal law as a distinctive world created and shaped by the interplay between the three branches of the federal government. It provides an overview of basic doctrine while inviting students to explore the many difficult and unsettled questions that continue to perplex judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and policymakers. Particularly since students’ basic Criminal Law courses draw on penal laws from any number of jurisdictions, this book will be their first exposure to an actual criminal law system, in which each law-shaping institution can react to the moves of the others.


  • Provides a comprehensive overview of the many federal criminal offenses prosecutors use to charge political corruption and explores difficult questions associated with criminalizing aspects of the political process.
  • Frames apparently diverse offenses like money laundering, RICO, and material support to terrorism as the complicity-broadening devices that make them intellectually interesting and practically potent.
  • Uses “Notes and Questions” to situate major cases in their proper political and historical contexts, tie together topics from different parts of the book that touch on similar themes, and explore lingering doctrinal ambiguities.
