This well-established title continues to be the only textbook offering in-depth analysis of criminal law in New Zealand. Incorporating major changes to case law and legislation since 2007, the new edition discusses important developments such as the abolition of the provocation defence in homicide cases, and the scope and availability of consent.

The expert exploration of the rules, underlying principles, and policies governing criminal liability, along with extensive citations of case law and articles, means this book is of value to students, academics, and legal practitioners alike.
