The sixth edition of Sentencing in Hong Kong is the latest instalment of Hong Kong's pre-eminent sentencing text by expert authors Grenville Cross and Patrick WS Cheung.
In the four years since the previous edition there have been many important developments in the ever-evolving law of sentencing. This book expertly reviews those developments and expands on matters of practice and procedure in the sentencing field. The effect of new legislation is examined, and the latest sentencing guidelines and tariff judgments are incorporated alongside reference to a series of Court of Final Appeal judgments involving sentencing options. The text as a whole has been updated and overhauled, and the all-important chapters regarding aggravating and mitigating factors have been expanded with the very latest references.
The book is masterfully composed in a style that is both clear and comprehensive, and arranged according to organised, discrete headings. The Appendix contains cases on quantum of sentence which have proven to be a practical and vital resource for courts and counsel. At the same time, the text contains a wealth of analytical material and is laden with comparative jurisprudence for those interested in changing attitudes to crime and punishment.
