The strength of this casebook is the uniformity of each chapter’s structure, which makes it easier to approach the chapter’s topic systematically. Each chapter begins with several sections that discuss the applicable law, followed by a separate section that discusses the Model Penal Code’s approach to the topic. This is then followed by a “Comparative Perspectives” section that encourages students to think about alternative ways of approaching the topic. The richness of the comparative materials used in the casebook is unmatched by its competitors, as many of the materials have been translated by the author. Finally, each chapter ends with a section titled “Scholarly Debates” that introduces the student to some of the philosophical discussions related to the topic.
