Thoroughly reviewed and revised for even greater clarity and relevance, this edition contains multiple examples from drawn from The American Law Institute’s Model Penal Code. Even more than previous editions, it goes beyond a pure “law enforcement” orientation, offering a broader and more all-encompassing approach to criminal law.
