Criminal Law: Cases, Statutes, and Lawyering Strategies is one of the most compact casebooks in the market, yet it covers all of the traditional criminal law subjects and also contains several special features: explanations and introductions to complex material, a problem approach, an emphasis on reading statutes, current issues such as terrorism, case files, sound coverage of some important areas neglected by other books, and a focus on the realities of the criminal law.
