Format: Paperback
Criminal Law is a subject many people find fascinating, but with quite a few tricky concepts lurking in the syllabus, it can sometimes be difficult to get to grips with the key issues.
This book is highly recommended to those studying Criminal Law - I used an earlier edition during my first year at university and found it very easy to read and follow. You do not feel, for this straightforward style, that you are missing out on the detail - the author's coverage of the key cases is really superb - and this is a subject where you will need to know those cases! There is no needless waffle here - just the principles you need to understand to do well.

An excellent text and well worth buying especially for those doing the OCR A-level syllabus in the UK. I used it almost exlusively for my A level studies and found it both clear and concise, and yet it never lacked in detail or insight.

This book is very good for people new to the legal field such as foreign lawyers or first-year law students. Benefits are that it is very concise and brief. Good injunction with lectures, podcasts or law journal reports. Positives are that it has good brief summaries of each area of criminal law; written in good simple English.

Format: Paperback
I am forced to agree with the previous reviewer that this textbook does make an interesting subject boring.
However this is not my biggest criticism, as law students we are forced to read 19th century judgements on a fairly regualar basis. I think its fair to say we're no strangers to the heavy stuff. What i really don't like about this book, intended largely for undergraduates is how unbalanced it is, the authors own personal views (legitimate ones, i greatly respect allen as a barrister)come out too often and in too much length. Undergrad textbooks are about the current position of the law first and foremost, it is completely neccessary to point out shortcomings but balance remains essential, it has sadly been lost in this text. read his articles, i thoroughly recommended them but stick to smith and hogan for the substantive stuff, its twice the length and feels like half the read.I don't like the referencing either.
