Criminal Law of New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia is a comprehensive text which explains and examines the fundamental principles of criminal law. It is the only book which discusses and analyses in detail the criminal law in all common law jurisdictions in Australia. The book contains a carefully crafted mix of commentary, legislative extracts and case extracts and covers all of the main criminal offences, including homicide, assault, sexual and property offences. Each chapter contains review questions to facilitate in depth discussion and analysis of seminal issues in the criminal law.

The main defences to crime, including self-defence, mental impairment, necessity and duress are discussed in detail. The fundamental doctrines which underpin and inform the development and content of the criminal law, including theories of culpability and the justification of the criminal law are set out in a clear and comprehensive manner. The historical, social, cultural, political and normative considerations which underpin and influence the reform of the criminal law are also discussed in order to facilitate a high level understanding of the law.

Criminal Law of New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia is an outstanding resource for criminal law practitioners and a seminal teaching resource for undergraduate and postgraduate criminal law students.
