Principles of Criminal Law
This paperback book, which is briefer than most of its competitors, presents the basic concepts and principles of criminal law. The authors present the prevailing positions on specific issues, without going into lengthy explanations of majority and minority positions. This clarity of presentation allows them to include material not often found in other books on criminal law, such as white collar crime, victimless crime, political crime, and non-political crimes against the government. For anyone interested in criminal law.
