The criminal laws of the Northern Territory can claim to be the most interesting in Australia. The Territory more than any other jurisdiction has had to confront a world where a substantial percentage of offenders are Indigenous and, until recently, Aboriginal people who had a closer empathy with traditional tribal law than with the imposed Western criminal law. The result is criminal law which differs in a number of important respects from both the Criminal Codes and from the common law. Stephen Gray has now written a clear, concise account, covering procedure, all the major offences and evidentiary issues and with a notable chapter dealing with the very difficult issues of sentencing which have arisen. The book is sufficiently black letter to be useful to Territory practitioners and sufficiently contexualised to attract a wider readership.

Common Law trained lawyers and Code lawyers alike will bring their own opinions to the initial points raised in Chapter 1 commenting on our system that is the only true hybrid system currently operating in Australian criminal justice. Chapter 2 is my own favourite, drawing as it does on legal historical sources and the interaction between the general legal system and indigenous people, ... the chapters on procedure, the substantive law and sentencing [are] extremely useful. The text is well footnoted and documented and includes sources beyond reported cases and statutes. Even those well versed in the intricate twists and turns of criminal law and procedure will benefit from the orderly collection and clear discussion of case law and associated materials. - Jenny Blokland SM, Magistrates' Chambers, Darwin NT
