PSA Pillai’s Criminal Law is one of the most archetypal text on the Indian Penal Code, 1860, ever since the publication of its first edition in 1956. With a section wise content flow, this work adopts an entirely different approach to the study of the law of crime, focusing on both emerging issues and legislative developments. A leading treatise on the subject for over five decades, this work, is a thematic presentation of the complex and multi-dimensional subject of criminal law in a lucid, comprehensive and systematic manner. The book, primarily concerned with the substantive offences incorporated in the Indian Penal Code, also explains all relevant provisions of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 and the Indian Evidence Act, 1872.
