Description of Product

This revised second edition of a highly respected text critically evaluates the general principles of criminal responsibility in Malaysia and Singapore with a view to assisting the application of the law and promoting law reform. The major offences against the person and property are examined, including recent legislative changes. Leading cases from Malaysia and Singapore are considered along with relevant cases from India, Australia and other jurisdictions. This book is essential for legal practitioners, judges, scholars and students. The detailed analysis of the principles, workings, and complexities of criminal law in each chapter is done in an organised and structured manner, with clear headings and sub-headings that make it easy for referencing and review. A comprehensive analysis on major cases, academic commentary and law reform perspectives on criminal law clearly makes the book an authoritative text referred to in legal proceedings, judgments and scholarly journals. This revised second edition is also a definitive source of comparative law for lawmakers and scholars in other jurisdictions, where the Indian Penal Code forms part of the law, as it features helpful and insightful discussions of how Malaysian and Singaporean judges have interpreted and applied the Code provisions.
