Ashworth’s Principles of Criminal Law, now in its tenth edition, takes a distinctive approach to the subject of criminal law, whilst still covering all of the vital topics found on criminal law courses. Uniquely theoretical, it begins with an exploration of the underlying principles and theoretical foundations of the criminal law, givng the reader the necessary context and tools to critically engage with and analyse the law in the later chapters.

Goes beyond the traditional format and structure of criminal law textbooks, offering an original and successful blend of doctrinal and theoretical analysis, encouraging students to think beyond issues of policy and theory towards a deeper understanding of the subject
Concise yet thorough explanation of complicated arguments with a fluent style that engages readers, making the law and its theoretical background accessible
Refers to a wide variety of useful resources for students, both in the main body of the text and in footnotes and further reading lists, providing students with a definitive research and reference tool
Also available as an e-book with functionality, navigation features, and links that offer extra learning support
