This is the latest edition of one of the leading criminal law textbooks in South Africa. It is available as both a printed book and as an e-book. The third edition dates back to 2005, making this edition a timely re-presentation of the text. Despite being some 100 pages shorter than its predecessor, this edition remains a voluminous offering. However, the length of the book is a function of its comprehensiveness. Certainly, no other criminal law textbook surpasses its ambit and ambition.
