Complete Criminal Law: Text, Cases, and Materials

Janet Loveless

Complete Criminal Law: Text, Cases, & Materials offers a student-centered approach to the criminal law syllabus. Clear and concise explanation of general legal principles is combined with fully integrated extracts from the leading cases and a wide range of academic materials. The extracts have been carefully selected to ensure that they are detailed enough to illustrate the point of law under consideration, but succinct enough not to disrupt the flow of the text or to intimidate the student new to the study of criminal law.

The book has been carefully structured with the needs of the student firmly in mind. Each chapter begins with basic principles, and gradually covers all the core topics a student needs to know. Unique to this textbook is the extent to which the law is placed firmly in its social context. This will reinforce understanding by relating essential aspects of the law to vital social and moral problems.

Throughout the text a range of learning features are employed to consolidate understanding and encourage application: thinking points containing reflective and short answer questions, definition boxes, summary points, diagrams, and problem/essay questions (with guidance on answering all questions on the accompanying Online Resource Centre). Chapter summaries and further reading recommendations provide the perfect springboard for further research.

This innovative text aims to engage the reader in an active approach to learning and to stimulate reflection about the role of criminal law in society.
