Principles of Criminal Law, now in its sixth edition, takes a distinctly different approach to the study of criminal law, while still covering all of the vital topics found on criminal law courses. Uniquely theoretical, it seeks to elucidate the underlying principles and theoretical foundations of the criminal law, and aims to critically engage readers by contextualizing and analyzing the law. This edition continues to fulfil this remit, while incorporating all of the most recent developments, such as the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007, the Serious Crime Act 2007, the Law Commission report on murder, the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008, and the Fraud Act 2006. This is essential reading for students seeking a sophisticated and critically engaging exploration of the subject.
