Synopsis

In order to fully grasp criminal law concepts, students must go beyond mere rote memorization of the penal code and attempt to understand where the laws originate from and how they have developed. Criminal Law, Second Edition blends legal and moral reasoning in the examination of crimes and explores the history relating to jurisprudence and roots of criminal law. It fosters discussions of controversial issues and delivers abridged case law decisions that target the essence of appellate rulings.











Grounded in the model penal code, making the text national in scope, this volume examines:























Why the criminal codes originated, and the moral, religious, spiritual, and human influences that led to our present system

How crimes are described in the modern criminal justice model

The two essential elements necessary for criminal culpability: actus reus (the act committed or omitted) and mens rea (the mind and intent of the actor)

Offenses against the body resulting in death, including murder, manslaughter, felony murder, and negligent homicide

Nonterminal criminal conduct against the body, including robbery, kidnapping, false imprisonment, assault, and hate crimes

Sexual assault, rape, necrophilia, incest, and child molestation

Property offenses, such as larceny/theft, bribery, forgery, and embezzlement

Crimes against the home, including burglary, trespass, arson, and vandalism

















The book also examines controversial public morality issues such as prostitution, drug legalization, obscenity, and pornography. The final two chapters discuss inchoate offenses, where the criminal act has not been completed, and various criminal defenses such as legal insanity, entrapment, coercion, self-defense, and mistake of fact or law.











Important keywords introduce each chapter, and discussion questions and suggested readings appear at the end of each chapter, prompting lively debate and further inquiry into a fascinating subject area that continues to evolve.

Dr. Nemeth has spent the vast majority of his professional life in the study and practice of law and justice.
