Summary

Queensland Criminal Law offers fresh and critical perspectives on many issues of contemporary criminal justice in Queensland and presents old problems in new and comparative contexts. The book seeks to raise many questions about the criminal law in Queensland, rather than provide definitive answers and readers of this book are invited to critically reflect on their relationship to the criminal law as citizens, as students, as practitioners of the discipline and, perhaps, as potential subjects of its sanctions. Now in its second edition, the book facilitates the study of criminal law in Queensland by exploring and analysing the general principles and specific offences under Queensland's criminal law and drawing comparisons - where relevant - to developments at common law, federal criminal law, and in other jurisdictions.
