Summary
"Based on his popular Illustrated Guide to Law webcomic series, Nathaniel Burney debunks all of the popular myths about criminal law that get repeated on street corners, in locker rooms, and on websites every day -- all of them wrong. He teaches everything you never learned about the law. Not just what the law is, but why it's like that and how it works. The Illustrated Guide to Criminal Law is a complete law school course that keeps the laughter in manslaughter. You start with the absolute basics (what is crime?) and are soon deep in complex concepts like conspiracy, self-defense, and yes, entrapment -- all explained with clarity, humor, and passion"--From publisher's description
