There is no other book from a Scottish perspective devoted to all three inchoate crimes.Inchoate crimes - attempts, incitement and conspiracy - are a complex area of law, affected by both common lawdoctrine and statutory regimes. The first Scottish book dedicated to the subject, Inchoate Crimes provides much needed guidance on the subject. The author draws on developed doctrines in other relevant jurisdictions tosuggest alternative approaches for Scots law.This title also combines substantive material with discussion on the nature and justification for the punishmentof such crimes. Inchoate Crimes will assist criminal lawyers in everyday practice by explaining the currentstate of Scots law surrounding inchoate crimes and suggesting alternative approaches where Scottish authority isdeficient or entirely absent.Dr. Sarah Christie is a Senior Lecturer at The Robert Gordon University.
