    Smith & Hogan's Criminal Law is regarded as the leading doctrinal textbook on criminal law in England and Wales and has been for over 45 years. The book owes its consistent popularity to its accessible style, depth of analysis and breadth of coverage. It is an invaluable text for undergraduates and is an essential reference source for criminal law practitioners.
