Criminal law

P S A Pillais Criminal Law has deservedly been described as a classic text on the Indian Penal Code, 1860, ever since the publication of its first edition in 1956. It systematically and clearly provides an in-depth analysis of all the categories of offences incorporated in the Code. Retaining the scheme and essential facets of the previous editions, the revising editor has developed the work in the light of leading judicial pronouncements and emerging trends in the field. He also offers a critical analysis of reforms that have been proposed by the Law Commission and other bodies. The book is primarily about the substantive law of crimes in India, however, it very helpfully explains relevant provisions of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 and the Indian Evidence Act, 1872, and thus places the law in a practical context. Written in a simple and lucid style and supported with rich authorities, judicial as well as scholarly, this latest edition will retain its decades old appeal for all persons interested in the field of criminal law. This book is an essential companion for practitioners, academicians and trial court judges, especially those at the outset of their careers. The current edition will be a welcome entrant to the libraries of senior members of the profession, many of whom have relied, at one time or another, on Pillais Criminal Law, as a handy reference. It will also be indispensable reading for students of law pursuing their LLB, LLM, and Doctoral Degrees in the field of criminal law
