The Law of Intoxication: A Criminal Defence is a definitive treatise on intoxication as a criminal defence. This book exhaustively considers how a state of intoxication can provide a full defence to criminal offences.

This book considers the law and the theory of a full defence of intoxication. Each chapter reveals significant case law, which has often been neglected, ignored or unnoticed. It takes a comparative approach by citing extensively from jurisdictions across the common law world including England and Wales, Scotland, Canada, USA, South Africa and New Zealand.

It also considers the partial defence of voluntary intoxication. The author provides a theoretical analysis of the basis for the full defence and evaluates significant developments in this area.
