Abstract

This second edition is a thorough restatement of the key elements of the criminal law of Scotland which is fully updated for developments (since the publication of the first edition) in both the law itself and in the academic commentary. The book takes a critical and theoretical approach to its discussion of the legal principles whilst providing in-depth analysis and retaining from the first edition its characteristic "critique and proposals for reform" sections.
