dc.description.abstractPrinciples of Criminal Law, 3rd Edition, explores the criminal law of every Australian jurisdiction and seeks to place it into the wider context of Australian society. It examines the principles of the law in detail, providing a thought-provoking and engaging experience for the reader by analysing and challenging these principles from interdisciplinary perspectives, such as sociology, psychology, criminology, and legal theory. This third edition contains topical sections on the new federal laws dealing with serious and organised crime and the trafficking of persons, as well as the raft of new terrorism offences, including the controversial remodelled offence of sedition. It is updated in all areas and includes analyses of the new versions of the Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory Criminal Codes as well as the effect of the Victorian Charter of Human rights and Responsibilities and the Human rights Act 2004 (ACT). It also covers new material on: 堡ssisted suicide; 堥xtended common purpose and acting in concert doctrines; 堳erious cartel conduct; 堭istakes of fact and law; and 堣onspiracy to do acts in preparation for a terrorist act. This edition maintains a strong focus on the importance of reform. It outlines key academic and policy debates, as well as providing comparative insights on the direction of criminal law from related jurisdictions. Principles of Criminal Law, 3rd Edition, is a valuable resource for students of criminal law, advanced criminal law, criminology and criminal justice. Judges, scholars and practitioners seeking a criminal law text with great depth of analysis combined with insight into the future development of the law will also find it of value.en_US
