Criminal Law in Canada: An Introduction to the Theoretical Social and Legal Contexts
The book's interdisciplinary approach to the study of criminal law combines commentary by the authors with excerpts from cases, government reports and extensive secondary material, including newspaper reports and articles. The book fills a gap between books that adopt standard black letter approaches to criminal law and those that focus exclusively on the social aspects of criminal law. While critically examining the traditional approach to criminal law found in the Criminal Code and the common law, this text explores the historical, theoretical, sociological and political contexts of the criminal law and its administration.
