Queensland Criminal Law 3rd Edition 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 criminal law, 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, and perhaps, as potential subjects of its sanctions.

The book facilitates the study of the criminal law in Queensland; by exploring and analyzing 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.
