Far from constituting a mere repository of jurisprudence, the book brings careful comments and criticisms to countless decisions issued by the Brazilian courts in criminal and criminal procedural matters, always invoking a great deal of national and foreign penal doctrine. Although the primary objective of the work is eminently practical (that is, to give exact knowledge of the case law), the considerable depth of the analysis of the theoretical-practical issues dealt with in the judgments confers undeniable relevance to the issues addressed.
