Australian Criminal Laws: Critical Perspectives provides a critical understading of criminal laws. The general ""principles of criminal law"" have traditionally been viewed as authoritatively set out or ""posited"" without reference to their historical and social context. This book moves beyond that approach and through the use of detailed case studies, the foundations of criminal laws are placed in their broad context. The law relating to serious criminal offences and defenced in Australia is described and analysed to offer critical perspectives on the law's development and operation, and to highlight law reform issues. Australian Criminal Laws: Critical Perspectives provides a major contribution to contemporary criminal law literature that will be of interest to scholars of the criminal law and criminology as well as to undergraduate and postgraduate students in those disciplines. It gives criminologists an understanding of current criminal laws and criminal lawyers an understanding of the law's social context.
