In addition to offering a comprehensive survey of the major concepts and doctrines in criminal law, a unique feature of this book are the many provocative and teachable case selections used to illustrate major concepts. The facts of virtually every case lend themselves to creative teaching and will stick in the memories of both instructor and students. Meanwhile, lucidly organized notes following the cases deliver both doctrine and interesting tangents with clarity and brevity.

The new edition also incorporates the most recent significant cases and scholarship, including recent application of traditional criminal law concepts in more complex “”modern”” contexts such as white collar crime. Special features of the book include:

  The authors introduce and employ theoretical perspectives in a clear and accessible way. These materials encourage students to understand and apply various approaches to criminal law issues, including liberalism, feminism, critical race theory, and the rights of victims.
  Like its predecessor, this edition has uniquely detailed and inclusive coverage of modern day property crimes, and reflects sophisticated contemporary thinking about homicide and rape
  The book’s extensive treatment of recent white collar corporate prosecutions allows full consideration of controversies where traditional criminal law concepts are also being applied to civil and corporate disputes.
  The cases and commentaries promote a clear and thorough presentation of causation, the crime of attempt, group criminality, and defenses.
  The authors draw attention to the intersection of civil and criminal liability, encouraging students to consider the differences between criminal law and other types of legal regulation.

Great book Our prof was one of the authors and although the typical reaction is that the prof is forcing students to buy their products, that is not the case here. Professor Kinports is amazing, she knows her stuff and she encourages discussion on all sorts of CrimLaw topics. She’s always happy to help and eager to encourage. Her book is no different, the notes are very clear and the cases are at least entertaining (there will always be some disturbing ones because it is CrimLaw).

Criminal Law:Cases and Materials I brought this book used and when I received it the book was in a horrible condition. The seller is so wrong for not saying what condition the book was really in. It was falling apart. The seller alluded to the fact that the book was in “good condition” when it was not even close. The book was off the bind as well as pages falling out. The book was dirty and pages were missing. It is really hard to understand a case if pages are missing. I did not return it because I did not have the…

Excellent Service I received this product damaged on account of shipping. I emailed and described the condition of the book (which I had bought as new). They emailed me back promptly and were extremely nice. Gave me all of my money back, including the cost of shipping the book to me in the first place, as well as the cost of the return shipping fee. Everything was very prompt. Would definitely buy from them again.
