Where necessary, it also includes discussion of two certain areas of Hong Kong's criminal law may develop.

The general principles of criminal liability are then covered in Parts Two to Four, including the elements of liability, general defences, and participation and inchoate liability. In Parts Five and Six, fatal and non-fatal offences against the person, sexual offences, and offences against the Theft Ordinance are discussed. (source: Nielsen Book Data) 9789622095595 20160528
