Clarkson and Keating Criminal Law: Text and Materials examines the main principles and rules of criminal law and explores the theoretical bases upon which they are founded in an easily digestible text.

  • Combines the best features of a standard 'textbook' with those of a 'cases and materials' book to provide guidance and direction on the law, whilst presenting a substantial amount of key primary material selected from a diversity of sources
  • Includes extracts from cases and academic articles, carefully edited to make them accessible to students
  • Draws on non-legal contextual material to provide a social context to the law rather than a mere analysis of the rules
  • Examines the relationship between substantive criminal law and penology
  • Highlights how criminal law is inextricably linked to fundamental issues of moral philosophy and penology
  • Includes analysis of leading case decisions including Kennedy (No 2) (2008) (manslaughter); Rahman (2008) (joint unlawful enterprise); R v G (2009) (rape of child under 13); Evans (2009) (omissions)
  • Covers all key developments including Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007; Serious
  • Crimes Act 2007 (encouraging and assisting crime); Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 (self-defence); Coroners and Justice Act 2009 (abolishing provocation and introducing loss of control)
