Criminal Law: Cases and Materials by Professor K.D. Gaur, a classic work in the field of criminal law, has been quoted with approval in the judgments of various courts in India and abroad. The present edition, extensively revised and updated, not only gives a complete insight into the text of applicable statutes but also provides a succinct analysis of the black letter. The book delves into important topics relating to the fundamentals of crime and criminal law, principles of criminal liability, mens rea under the Indian Penal Code and other statutory offences, strict liability of manufacturers of hazardous substances, cybercrimes and offences against the human body. The book also traces and analyses the worldwide movement towards the abolition of capital punishment by Amnesty International resulting in its removal from the penal laws of 138 countries. Recent amendments of far reaching significance made in section 375 and insertion of a number of new offences vide the Criminal Law (Amendment) Act (13 of 2013), such as sections 326A, 326B, 354A, 354B, 354C, 354D, 370A, 376A, 376B, 376C, 376D and 376E have been included. Exhaustive and critical evaluation of new offences, such as causing grievous hurt by acid attack, sexual harassment, assault with intent to disrobe a woman, voyeurism, stalking, sexual intercourse by persons in authority, gang rape and provisions for harsh punishment for repeat and habitual offenders, enhance the utility of the book. Punishment for crimes such as rape, dowry death and other heinous offences, like drug trafficking, hijacking, etc., have been thoroughly discussed and critically evaluated. Special care has been taken to include the leading cases, wherein the judiciary has played an innovative and pivotal role in evolving new concepts of criminal jurisprudence. An additional feature of the book is the inclusion of important cases from countries such as the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, South Africa, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Hong Kong, Myanmar and Malaysia to apprise the readers of the global trends and new horizons of criminal justice. This book is an indispensable tool for law students, members of the Bar and Bench and those interested in the administration of criminal justice.
