Publisher Comments:

The only text of its kind, this edition retains the structure and characteristics that make it so effective:

- intuitive organization that tracks the criminal sentencing process

- examples that are taken from three distinct sentencing worlds: guideline-determinate, indeterminate, and capital

- draws on materials from courts, including decisions from the U.S. Supreme Court, the state high courts, the federal appellate courts, and a few cases from foreign jurisdictions; as well as other kinds of institutions, including statutes and guidelines provisions; and reports and data from sentencing commissions and other agencies

- problems and questions in text are integrated with existing Websites of sentencing commissions, such as the site for the U.S. Sentencing Commissions (www.ussc.gov)

- thought-provoking notes emphasizing the effects of sentencing explain the most common practices in U.S. jurisdictions then ask students to compare institutions and consider the connections between specific sentencing rules and the purposes and politics of criminal justice

- instructors' website (www.sentencingbook.net) provides a complete online Teacher's Manual as well as access to up-to-date teaching materials

- students' website (www.sentencingbook.com) links students to a virtual library and features longer collections of rules and guidelines, statutes, case studies, recent articles, as well as practice problems and sample exams

Completely updated, the Second Edition features:

- complete coverage of Blakely v. Washington and United States v. Booker
