Criminal Law in Queensland explores and analyzes the general principles and specific offenses under Queensland's criminal law, and draws comparisons, where relevant, to developments in common law and elsewhere. Unlike existing texts, the book also comprehensively covers the rapidly expanding are of federal criminal law and the general principles of criminal responsibility under the Criminal Code . This book offers some fresh and critical perspectives on many issues of contemporary criminal justice and presents old problems in new and comparative contexts.
