This was my last semester's class and I liked every bit of it. Read every page during the course of the semester. I was top of the class and my instructor knew that I did the reading assignments. The presentation here is pretty good. Actus reus (the guilty act) and mens rea (intent) are well defined and used repeatedly to drive home some of the subject matter in all the various crime categories from capital crimes on down to victimless crimes. I really liked my Crim class, good instructors help too.

I found this book to be very informative and relevant to current law enforcement principals readily used in modern day times. Plus, this textbook does a great job emphasizing the formal practices of criminal law in layman's terms for the average student being introduced to this field for the first time.

Bought this book for my college criminal justice class. The book was very expensive at my college bookstore, so I was able to save a great amount of money on a great book in great condition!

It's exactly what I needed for class. Arrived on time and in excellent condition. So much cheaper than purchasing a used book that I will never use again.
