Comprehensive Criminal Procedure, Second Edition (Casebook) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The casebook builds on its strengths:

- comprehensive coverage

- excellent case selection and editing

- expertise of the authors

- law and society approach

- thoughtful, thematic organization around five main points: real-world implications of alternative regulatory regimes; the power of legislatures to indirectly eliminate procedural rights; modern law of criminal procedure as a direct result of the effort to eliminate racial disparities in the U.S.; implications of limited resources; and an emphasis on history

- well-written notes

- a chapter on plea bargaining

The Second Edition responds to changes in the law, as well as to user feedback:

- new discussion of critical stages in the chapter on Right to Counsel

- timely coverage of post-9/11 issues

- additional coverage of FISA

- special addendum including the landmark case United States v. Booker

- revised and updated Teacher's Manual

Book News Annotation:

Allen (law, Northwestern U.), Hoffmann (law, Indiana U., Bloomington), Livingston (law, Columbia U.), and Stuntz (law, Harvard U.) provide a set of materials for use in criminal procedure courses beyond those that focus primarily on state law issues. All chapters have been thoroughly revised to take account of recent developments, particularly the effects of the "War on Terror" for criminal procedure doctrine. The text includes new material relating to post- 9/11 developments including a new chapter on complex crimes and national security; significant revisions to the chapter on the Fourth Amendment; and major revision to the chapters on the Fifth Amendment, complex crimes investigation, guilty pleas and plea bargaining, sentencing--including the Supreme Court's decision in United States v. Booker, and double jeopardy.
