The fourth edition of this highly regarded text explains all the basic principles relating to Scots criminal law, and takes account of ongoing changes in substantive law, including the continuing influence of the Human Rights Convention and related jurisprudence in Scots law. Developments in case law reflect the prominence of statutory offences, the replacement of breach of the peace as a public order offence, further analysis of the meaning of 'wicked' in the context of recklessness, an examination of perjury, reflections upon diminished responsibility, the interaction between provocation and self-defence, and how Scotland has sought to address the right to die issue.

The text also includes developments in case law, changes arising from the Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act 2009 and coverage of the Criminal Justice and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2010 including Breach of Peace.

This book provides an essential introduction to criminal law for law students and those with a general interest in this subject, while assisting and encouraging more detailed study.
