Description

Product Description

A book that students find interesting and instructors consider educationally valuable, this Fifth Edition of Contemporary Criminal Law combines traditional concepts with thought-provoking cases and engaging learning tools. Taking a casebook approach, the text covers both foundational and emerging legal topics such as terrorism, gangs, cybercrime, and hate crimes, illustrated by real-life examples that students connect with. Clear explanations of criminal law and defenses are complemented by provocative, well-edited cases followed by discussion questions to stimulate critical thinking and in-class discussion. The book provides a contemporary perspective on criminal law that encourages students to actively read and analyze the text. The Fifth Edition is enhanced throughout by new cases that offer the most up-to-date coverage of evolving legal opinions and developments in criminal law.

New to This Edition

  • New cases illuminate important concepts, including decisions on criminal acts, criminal intent, parties, corporate crime, kidnapping, identity theft, computer crime, prostitution, terrorism, and more.
  • One or more new You Decide sections in most chapters clarify concepts to illustrate the complexity of legal analysis and enhance the interactive character of the text. Additional hypothetical problems are available on the companion site.
  • New Crime in the News features look at recent events such as the criminal trial of Dylann Roof, the dark web, and the leaking of confidential government documents to help students apply important concepts to real-world scenarios. 
  • New and expanded discussions of critical topics cover the Second Amendment and gun control, the Trump administration′s stance on marijuana, sentencing guidelines, and criminal defenses.

This book is PACKED with cases and proper legal terminology. It was used in my Admnistration of Justice classes in college and was definitely a tool I''d reccomend to a teacher or to a diligent student who wants a nice textbook to add to their catalog. It really helped me form opinions about certain cases as well as formulate proper questions as to constitutional rights as well as law, infringement of other persons rights, and much more. Some of the terminology however will not be used in police field work, this is more for lawyer types and prospective detectives.

Edit: after a semester of use, it''s still in really good shape unlike most paperback books! I was a little rough with it but I''m sure people take better care of textbooks than I might. Added pictures after semester ended. Definitely has good resale value!

I needed this particular text for school, and I was okay with it. It was not so dry that there was no enjoyment to the reading itself, but it was not something I would have picked for fun obviously. This book was much more enjoyable than some of my other law texts.... See more
I needed this particular text for school, and I was okay with it. It was not so dry that there was no enjoyment to the reading itself, but it was not something I would have picked for fun obviously. This book was much more enjoyable than some of my other law texts. Sometimes the chapters get kind of long, but with enough coffee, you can get through anything.
