For courses in Introduction to Criminal Law and Principles of Criminal Law.

With its brief format and narrative approach, this book moves away from dense citations and lengthy discussion to present the basic concepts and principles of criminal law in a clear and accessible tone. Covering a variety of topics, it discusses crimes such as white collar crime, victimless crime, and political crime, in addition to the major offenses. Chapters focus on real-world applications and include short edited cases, focus boxes, and end-of-chapter practicums. Fully updated in this edition, the revision includes new How Would You Rule sections and material on terrorism, home invasion robbery, and racketeering.
