Description:

Criminal Law for the Criminal Justice Professional, third edition, presents a complete basic introduction to the substance of those rules and laws that comprise the fabric of the criminal justice system in the United States. This text, like the first edition, describes the structure of the system, the theories underlying criminal responsibility, and the elements of specific crimes. The general principles that motivate the lawmakers have not changed since the development of Anglo-American criminal law, though legislative detail and focus have varied. This new edition takes into account the shifts in emphasis of the lawmakers and courts in the development of American criminal law in the global political, economic, and social climate of the twenty-first century. Straightforwardyet analytical, the text aims at delivering to students a timely overview of the state of American criminal law. The book is designed primarily for undergraduates enrolled in basic criminal law classes for Criminal Justice students.
