Robert Shiels' important work embraces all recent legislative changes to offensive weapons legislation as it stands in the United Kingdom as a result of the Criminal Law (Consolidation)(Scotland) Act 1995 and the resulting Offensive Weapons Act 1996. In this edition the author takes account of case law developments since 1992; the activities of parliament in repealing statutes and enacting new ones; and the different positions which now exist amongst the three jurisdictions of the U.K. The legal framework is supported by extensive reporting of cases on the subject, placing the importance firmly on the development of a practical and manageable court tool. Offensive Weapons is an invaluable work for all practising criminal lawyers and the police forces nationwide.
