Within the criminal law, the area of offences against the person is one of the most important subjects and, at times, a controversial one. This book deals with both homicide, and non-fatal offences (including sexual offences). The theoretical bases, and practical operation, of the main offences in all areas are discussed, together with suggested possibilities for reform. The depth of treatment means that this book will be useful not only to students of criminal law, but also to practitioners, academics, and all who are concerned with the substantive offences operating within the English criminal justice system.
