By following the format of a textbook, but also giving the reader extracts from important original materials (both cases and academic articles), Clarkson and Keating is designed to fulfil the roles of both textbook and source book. The text's approach to the study of criminal law is to explain and evaluate the main principles and rules by reference to the objectives of the law.

Criminal Liability for Non Aggressive Death

Author: Sally Cunningham
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781317157861
Release Date: 2016-05-13
Genre: Law

The crime of manslaughter exists as a 'catch-all offence' to punish those who are blameworthy in causing the death of another but whose culpability falls short of that required for murder. Manslaughter is an extremely broad offence and it has a difficult task in ensuring that all those who warrant punishment for 'non-aggressive' deaths are convicted. Simultaneously, it should not be too broad in covering those who do not warrant punishment for such deaths. There is little consistency in whether a particular dangerous activity leads to liability for a specific offence or for the generic offence of manslaughter when death is caused. This book examines the current law and includes a variety of perspectives on the subject with chapters on specific modes of killing as well as issues that permeate all areas. The first half of the book deals with issues such as how any special offences for non-aggressive death should relate to a hierarchy of homicide offences. The second half deals with issues specific to different activities, which may or may not justify the creation of specific homicide offences. The book includes a comparative chapter on Australian law.

Crime Reason and History

Author: Alan Norrie
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781316060438
Release Date: 2014-10-09
Genre: Law

Many books seek to explain the general principles of the criminal law. Crime, Reason and History stands out and alone as a book that critically and concisely analyses these principles and comes up with a different viewpoint: that the law is shaped by social history and therefore systematically structured around conflicting elements. Updated extensively to include two new chapters on loss of control and self defence and with an extended treatment of offence and defence, this new edition combines challenging and sophisticated analysis with accessibility.
