Principles of Criminal Law, now in its seventh edition, takes a distinctly different approach to the study of criminal law, whilst still covering all of the vital topics found on criminal law courses. Uniquely theoretical, it seeks to elucidate the underlying principles and theoreticalfoundations of the criminal law, and aims to critically engage readers by contextualising and analysing the law. This edition continues to fulfil this remit, with additional insights from a new co-author, Professor Jeremy Horder, former Law Commisioner for England and Wales 2005-2010. Also new to this edition is an increased emphasis on key case law, further assisiting those undergraduate readers who may benew to the subject area. This is essential reading for students seeking a sophisticated and critically engaging exploration of the subject.
Professor Andrew Ashworth is Vinerian Professor of English Law at All Souls College, Oxford. Jeremy Horder is the Edmund-Davies Professor of Criminal Law at King's College London. From 2005-2010 he served as Law Commissioner for England and Wales.
