Description: Designed for the state of Texas, this book emphasizes the criminal laws of the Lone Star State using an approachable, example-filled style. Texas Criminal Law: Principles and Practices, 2e emphasizes the criminal laws of the Lone Star State using a narrative, example-filled style. The highly readable text presents both theoretical and practical applications of criminal law. Criminal law texts tend to be generic and occasionally augmented with state-specific supplements. While broad principles of criminal law are applicable everywhere, each state's criminal code varies these principles to a greater or lesser degree, thus the need for supplements - but the state specific material often contradicts the main text, thereby creating confusion among students. Texas Criminal Law integrates state specific material into the main text. Thus, students see how broad principles are applied in practice in a jurisdiction that operates under a very modern set of criminal statutes. While largely limited in use to Texas readers, the text nonetheless provides a focused view of substantive criminal law in an important jurisdiction. Teaching and Learning This highly readable text examines Texas criminal law with a mix of narrative, case opinions, and discussion topics, allowing the instructor a variety of teaching materials.
