A thoroughly revised edition of Canada’s premier treatise on criminal law. Written by defence counsel Morris Manning, Q.C. and Professor Peter Sankoff, Manning, Mewett & Sankoff on Criminal Law, 4th ed authoritatively articulates the governing principles of criminal law, and features a clear and comprehensive analysis of every offense in the Criminal Code and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

This edition has already been cited by the Supreme Court of Canada in R. v. Dudley, [2009] S.C.J. No. 58 at para. 18, just as previous editions had been repeatedly cited by the Supreme Court and by every provincial Court of Appeal.

This book facilitates efficient and focused legal research and provides a foundation upon which to build cogent legal arguments and is an essential resource for defence counsel, the Crown and the judiciary, as well as an indispensable guide for academics and students.
