Critics’ Reviews

“This book was a pleasure to read. Plaxton’s lucid analysis has generated fresh insights and questions in equal measure, which will inform my decisions in the future.”
Justice David H. Doherty, Court of Appeal for Ontario
“Professor Plaxton has refreshed Canadian literature on matters of substantive criminal law with a searching and rigorous analysis. His exposition of settled principles is sure. His arguments on matters of continuing debate are penetrating. The result is a sustained presentation of themes and variations in the service of an overarching thesis. This book is consistently rewarding and most welcome.”
Justice Patrick Healy, Court of Appeal of Quebec
