Textbook on Criminal Law by Michael J. Allen
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The ninth edition of Textbook on Criminal Law continues to closely match the coverage requirements of criminal law courses. The concise and lively writing style adopted brings clarity to the subject without compromising accuracy and detail. The popularity of the book lies in its engaging analysis that draws the student in, displaying a welcome lack of restraint when challenging the decisions of the judiciary or the legislature. The author draws on his considerable teaching and examining experience to make complex areas easily understable through a straightforward and jargon free approach that helps students feel comfortable with the subject, whilst encouraging wider debate on the underlying principles. Students studying criminal law for the first time are provided with the ideal balance of coverage and detail that makes the subject accessible. The book is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre offering twice-yearly updates to key cases and legislation, and an additioanl chapter: Misuse of Drugs Act Offences.
