Format: Paperback
If you're studying Crime as your law option at A-level (or even if your just interested, or doing higher qualifications), I'd highly reccomend this book. It's fantastic in that it seperates cases from the 'blurb' of the book by putting the cases in grey boxes. This is extremely useful if you are reading up on a set of cases from a variety of books (I had about four different text books for my A-level which I consulted, this being the easiest).
It's easy to read, and the diagrams and tables really ease the understanding of some of the areas - defences particularly.
I note that the defences were quite useful in this book - it gives a few pages of prose for each different one, with a few important cases (eg. Majewski for intoxication), but also references the importance of bringing it all together.
It does contain a section on 'key skills', but it would have been more useful if it contained the actual real skills you need to bring your studies together for examination - you know, suggestions on how to remember cases, how to write Prob Questions etc.
A very useful text, especially if you combine it with the latest edition of Diana Roe's text, and maybe backed up by the Key Facts or Nutshells/cases on Crime.

I am using this book for my A Level Criminal Law module, and it is very comprehensive. Anyone doing OCR Criminal law should consider buying it - be it as a textbook to use in class, or as a source for further reading on the subject - this book is packed with stuff! The cases are highlighted in their own blue boxes so theyc an be picked out easily. The amount of detail of the cases is a bit much, but it does help the understanding of why a certain verdict was reached or why the accused dis such an action.

Excellent book, and ideal for Students at A level and as a primer on criminal law for University students who have limited knowledge of criminal law, and when other texts leave them baffled ! The book is well laid out in logical steps and flows nicely from one subcategory to another. Save the headaches and mind numbingly confusing jargon and reclaim your sanity. A confidence builder, and it just makes sense !
