Recommended to Margaret by: Professor Stephen Morse, University of Pennsylvania Law School
Although the voluminous notes and cases likely provide an apt view of the schizophrenic Anglo-American criminal law, I would have appreciated some better exposition of unifying themes.

I read portions of this book for professor Bonventre's Criminal Law class at Albany Law school.

The book was a pleasure to read and gives a thorough account of the criminal process. The instruction I received focused mostly on the theories behind the criminal process. It was presented in a manner that made criminal law look very grey as opposed to the black and white structure of guilty or not guilty which was a very interesting thing.
Actually one of the better law books because it's not just case law, but it talks about legal theories and different schools of thought along with the progression of the law.

Recommends it for: aspiring criminals with more spare time on their hands
i learned that as an immigrant from a foreign land, if i ever commit a specific intent crime, i can raise a cultural defense to negate the requisite mens rea.
People do the most unusual things. And then, sometimes, they go to prison for doing so.
Interesting cases, but very dense and thin-paged (bad match for highlighters!).
Murder and manslaughter and rape, oh my!
We didn't use the book much in class.
