This casebook, through the selection of classic and modern cases, provides a tool for teaching students the common-law foundations of the criminal law and modern statutory reform, including the Model Penal Code. Along the way, the casebook considers modern controversies (e.g., "shaming" punishment, rape law, self-defense by battered women, euthanasia, the role of culture in determining culpability), and uses literature (e.g., examining insanity through Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart") and even "brain teasers" to confront (as the Preface states) "the Big Questions . . . that philosophers, theologians, scientists, and poets, as well as lawyers, have grappled with for centuries."
