Principles of Criminal Law
Principles of Criminal Law, 2nd Edition provides a comprehensive examination of the criminal law reflecting the distinctive Australian jurisprudence that has come into being in the last decade. It adopts a national perspective, which covers both Common Law and Code jurisdictions, as well as reform proposals contained in the Model Criminal Code. The authors draw upon their knowledge of a broad range of disciplines to illuminate the principles, policies and practices underlying the criminal law. Through the use of case studies, perspectives sections, shorter aside boxes, tables and diagrams, they examine the criminal law in an innovative and engaging manner. Incorporating sections that deal with history, empirical research and academic debates, Principles of Criminal Law offers a return to first principles that underlies the criminal law system. This second edition also features a new chapter on International and Transnational Crimes.
