Publisher Comments:

This edition preserves the outstanding qualities that have earned it distinguished success:

- a highly respected authorship — Kadish, Schulhofer, and new co-author Steiker — comprised of nationally recognized and renowned scholars

- cohesive intellectual framework — by viewing the law both as a system for apportioning blame in accordance with moral norms and as an instrument of social control, it provides an analytical tool with which students can interpret and understand doctrine

- a cases-and-notes pedagogy with excerpted materials, questions, and problems

- a focus on developing an understanding of principles and rules applicable to all crimes, rather than the detailed and disjointed elements of many particular crimes

- problems that enhance student understanding of the basic principles by testing their applications and interactions in the context of particular offenses

- in-depth coverage of rape, homicide, and theft

The Eighth Edition has been carefully updated:

- it achieves continuity with its predecessors and makes little change in organization or coverage

- most principal teaching cases have been retained, with recent cases and illustrations added

- editing throughout enhances the transparency of the organization and accessibility of the notes and questions, providing greater clarity and ease of teaching

- a new section gives detailed attention to issues of statutory interpretation

- a new chapter on Discretion allows for study of the legal framework that governs charging, bargaining and sentencing, and the role they play in shaping determinations of culpability and punishment

- greater attention is focused on the ways thatsentencing considerations and the growth of federal criminal law have affected traditional criminal law principles and practices

- new attention is focused on international human rights and their implications for American criminal law

- more thorough examination of common law vocabulary and doctrine and a clarified organization enable students to differentiate more systematically between the common law and Model Penal Code approaches

- a completely revised section on the death penalty

Book News Annotation:

Kadish (law, U. of California, Berkeley), Schulhofer (law, New York U.), and Steiker (law, Harvard U.) introduce students to criminal law and its processes with an emphasis on statutory interpretation and the vocabulary and doctrine of common law, and attention given to the importance of federal criminal law and the new offenses used to elaborate traditional common law concepts, international human rights, and sentencing. This edition has been reorganized, includes a revised and expanded section on the death penalty, and systematically treats the concept of discretion in a new chapter. Other chapters are concerned with rape, homicide, group criminality, exculpation, theft offenses, and other crimes. The materials in the procedural sections have been shortened, cases have been updated in substantive sections, and notes and problems have been added. The book is meant for use in courses of any length. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
