Law in Context : Crime, Reason and History: A Critical Introduction to Criminal Law Paperback / softback
Many books seek to explain the general principles of the criminal law.
Crime, Reason and History stands out and alone as a book that critically and concisely analyses these principles and comes up with a different viewpoint: that the law is shaped by social history and therefore systematically structured around conflicting elements.
Updated extensively to include two new chapters on loss of control and self defence and with an extended treatment of offence and defence, this new edition combines challenging and sophisticated analysis with accessibility.
