There is no other book from a Scottish perspective devoted to all three inchoate crimes. Inchoate crimes - attempts, incitement and conspiracy - are a complex area of law, affected by both common law doctrine and statutory regimes. The first Scottish book dedicated to the subject, Inchoate Crimes provides much needed guidance on the subject. The author draws on developed doctrines in other relevant jurisdictions to suggest alternative approaches for Scots law.

This title also combines substantive material with discussion on the nature and justification for the punishment of such crimes. Inchoate Crimes will assist criminal lawyers in everyday practice by explaining the current state of Scots law surrounding inchoate crimes and suggesting alternative approaches where Scottish authority is deficient or entirely absent.
