For courses in criminal law.
A succinct, readable survey of criminal law
Principles of Criminal Law is a clear, efficient introduction to criminal law viewed through the lens of human behavior. Concise enough for a one-semester course, it provides critical background information, establishes elements of major crimes, and covers a vast range of crimes, including white¿-collar, victimless, and political crimes — without dense citations or lengthy discussion. Bolstered by cases and critical-thinking features, the 7th edition has new information on organized and white-collar crime, up-to-date marijuana laws, and additional content on specific crimes and legal rules.
