The virtual obliteration of national boundaries, accompanied by the effective shrinking of the world, has given rise to a dramatic increase in the number of transnational criminal cases and an evident increase in the sophistication of international criminals. This collection of essays, written by practitioners directly involved with the emerging issues, presents the reader with international crime developments. It offers a foundation for continued discussion in this emerging field, and should be of interest to all those practising in transnational and international law.

What kind of choices does a hardened criminal make? What belief systems are these choices based on? The Criminal Lifestyle approaches these questions by examining how various biological, sociological and psychological factors interact to bring about criminal behaviour. Walters develops a model of crime as a lifestyle and shows that this concept is historically, cross-nationally and empirically valid. Criminal behaviour, he argues, is a function of criminal thinking, and change is only possible given certain conditions. In this groundbreaking book Walters reviews the present literature and cri

Mental condition defenses have been used in several high-profile and controversial criminal trials in recent years. In this work, the author offers a detailed critical analysis of those defenses within British Criminal Law where the accused relies on some form of mental abnormality as a source of defense. Topics covered include: the defences of automatism, insanity, diminished responsibility, and infanticide; self-induced incapacity; the doctrine of fault; and unfitness to plead.
