Editorial Reviews


For many years, our standard work on criminal law has been Bishop's. First published in 1856, Bishop's is the only American book in the field that has conspicuously influenced our criminal law. (...) When Jerome Hall's, General Principles of Criminal Law (1947) appeared, it represented the first significant effort to articulate the principles of criminal law since Bishop's era. Hall's work may, in fact, represent the most important treatise on criminal law produced by American legal scholarship. --Fred Cohen, Journal of Legal Education 16 (1963-64) 260

Format: Hardcover
I suppose that if you've encountered this book, you are probably a student of the law. Rest assured, you've found one of the more important books of contemporary culture. Read this book with that of Foucault, Discipline and Punish. If there is a secret, this may be it. Hall describes with brilliant erudition, the modern theory of criminology. However, your trek is not complete until you've read Foucault. The questions raised may unexpectedly confirm your decision to study the law.
