Criminal Law: The Basics is an insightful introduction to the legal aspects of criminal acts, ranging from battery to burglary and harassment to homicide. Starting with an in-depth exploration of the very concept of crime, this book considers such questions as:

  • how should we decide what is criminal and what isn’t?
  • what is the difference between murder and manslaughter?
  • could you ever be guilty of stealing your own property?
  • what defences are available to those accused of crime?

The book features numerous case studies from the infamous to the bizarre and key questions for consideration throughout. Each chapter ends with lists of relevant cases, statutes and suggestions for further reading, making this an ideal starting point for anyone interested in criminal law.
