Providing the undergraduate criminal law course with a nationally acclaimed blend of analysis and illustrative cases, Joel Samaha's CRIMINAL LAW is the textbook of first choice among instructors across the country. Praised for his clear, concise, engaging writing style, Samaha presents criminal law using a combined text/casebook approach. So while he includes cases to amplify text coverage, the text is actually comprehensive enough to stand alone?which means that instructors can pick and choose the extent of case coverage they wish in their courses yet still have the best of the best in terms of case law. And to make the text even more flexible, Samaha also presents a number of fully explicated cases, including some case excerpts, to cover the broad range of criminal law, so instructors can not only select the degree to which cases are used in their individual courses, but also the degree to which case excerpts or explanations are used. The full text of all excepted cases in the book is available on the website. Including the latest topics and cases AND accompanied by a stellar collection of teaching and learning resources, this Ninth Edition is even more effective in helping students understand and think analytically about the underlying principles and policies that specific cases illustrate.

Joel Samaha is Professor of History and Sociology at the University of Minnesota, where he teaches Introduction to Criminal Justice, Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, The Supreme Court and the Constitution, and "Is there a Wartime Exception to the Bill of Rights?"-a special joint Sociology/History Department topics course. He received his B.A., J.D., and Ph.D. from Northwestern University and studied under the late Sir Geoffrey Elton at Cambridge University, England. Professor Samaha was admitted to the Illinois Bar, briefly practiced law in Chicago, and then taught at UCLA. In 1971, he joined the University of Minnesota, where he served as Chair of the Department of Criminal Justice Studies for four years, taught both television and radio courses in criminal justice, co-taught a National Endowment for the Humanities seminar in legal and constitutional history, and was named Distinguished Teacher in 1974. A proven author, Professor Samaha's works have appeared in HISTORICAL JOURNAL, AMERICAN JOURNAL OF LEGAL HISTORY, MINNESOTA LAW REVIEW, WILLIAM MITCHELL LAW REVIEW, and JOURNAL OF SOCIAL HISTORY.
