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.

This pocket book is comprised of the principal policy documents and multilateral legal instruments on international and European criminal law, with a special focus on Europol and Eurojust, as well as on initiatives aimed at combating international crime, organized crime, or terrorism. The sixth revised edition provides professors, students, judicial and law enforcement authorities, lawyers, and researchers with an accurate, up-to-date and low budget edition of essential texts on these matters. These texts have been ordered according to the multilateral cooperation level within which they were drawn up - either Prüm, the European Union (comprising also Schengen-related texts), the Council of Europe, or the United Nations. Within each of these four parts, they have been included in chronological order. The book comprises 34 newly added texts, including a series of newly adopted framework decisions, the new legal framework for Eurojust and Europol, the new EU Treaties, and the Stockholm Programme. Instruments amending others have been implemented for coherence and maintaining the spirit of the amendments in spite of small technical errors in the amending instruments. The amendments included in the Council Framework Decision of 26 February 2009, on trials in absentia, have been implemented in the framework decisions concerned with an indication in a footnote as to the application date. Exceptionally, both the Convention of 26 July 1995 on the use of information technology for customs purposes (and the 2003 Protocol thereto) and the Council Decision of 30 November 2009 on the use of information technology for customs purposes have been included, because the latter will replace the current Convention and its Protocol as of 27 May 2011.
