Criminal Law: The General Part

Tuesday 13 October 2015, author(s)-editor(s) Carlson Anyangwe

This is a comprehensive, insightful, lucid, intense and unrivalled text on the general part of the criminal law in Cameroon. Beginning with an account of the historical development of the criminal law generally, the author proceeds to analyse and discuss in detail the principles governing application of the criminal law, criminal responsibility, participation in crime, penalties, and sentencing. These principles are broadly the same in other jurisdictions. The book balances theoretical content with case-law illustrations to enhance readability, comprehension and assimilation. It is an invaluable source and essential reading for law students and teachers, and lawyers in private practice and government service.

  • Criminal Law: The General Part 13 October 2015 06:48, author(s)-editor(s) Professor Charles Manga Fombad

    “This book fully complements Professor Carlson Anyangwe’s earlier book, Criminal Law in Cameroon-Specific Offences (2011). From an author who is incontrovertibly the leading Cameroon legal scholar with a rock-solid reputation for accuracy and reliability, it has a lot to commend. Exceptionally detailed, thorough and thoughtful, the author’s simple but engaging and lively writing style and clarity of expression guides the reader through complex details without any feeling of being overwhelmed. The book takes the reader through the historical development of criminal law generally, its reception in Cameroon and navigates with ease through topics such as its application, criminal responsibility, participation in crime and criminal disposition in a sublime manner that is accessible not only to experts, particularly comparatists interested in Cameroon’s bi-jural system, but also even the novice. This and the earlier book, without doubt, provide the definitive and most authoritative work on modern criminal law in Cameroon.”
