This work offers a systematic, in-depth analysis of all areas of law relating to public order. It examines all offences brought in by statute since the Public Order Act 1986 as well as the remaining common law offences. Providing a complete guide to the subject, it analyses the underlying legal principles and constitutional background as well as guiding readers through all procedural matters, the use of police powers, evidence issues and sentencing. It: draws together in one source all aspects of law and practice concerned with public order; explains the principles on which the law is based; examines the wide-ranging impact of the Human Rights Act 1998 in this area; covers all the offences individually - from riot and affray to picketing, harrassment, aggravated trespass, incitement to racial and religious hatred, and possession offences; and contains a chapter on Anti-Social Behaviour Orders. It is up to date with the latest offences such as glorifying terrorism. It clarifies police powers in this area, and deals with practice and procedure as well as the substantive law.
