Book News Annotation:

Accommodating students and courses focused on adjudication--including pretrial, trial, sentencing, and appellate issues--this casebook comprises the first three chapters and the last ten chapters of Comprehensive Criminal Procedure, 3rd ed. The volume is smaller and less expensive than the "mother" text, leaving out material dealing with criminal investigations, a subject generally taught in a separate course. The five authors are affiliated with five institutions: Ronald Jay Allen (Northwestern U.), William J. Stuntz (Harvard U.), Joseph L. Hoffmann (Indiana U.), Debra A. Livingston (she's a US circuit judge and affiliated with Columbia U.), and Andrew D. Leipold (U. of Illinois). Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
