""This text explains all the basic principles relating to Scots criminal law. This new edition takes account of significant changes in the substantive law, including clarification of areas of doubt in the law of attempt, theft, diminished responsibility and the mens rea of rape. It also covers developments in other areas, including reckless conduct and the doctrine of art and part, where the boundaries of criminal liability have been explored and sometimes extended.Primarily intended for students, Scots Criminal Law, is a clear and comprehensive introduction to this important subject, and by providing a firm grounding, both assists and encourages more detailed study.""
