Viewing the criminal law as a means to the end of influencing human behavior, intensive analysis is made of various principles that apply in virtually every criminal case: justification, attempt, conspiracy, parties to crime, ignorance and mistake, immaturity, insanity, and intoxication. The law of homicide is explored in all its facets. The common law, statutes of New York and of representative states, and what the law ought to be are studied.
