Freedom from Unfair Searches and Seizures (Bill of Rights)

by

Freedom from Unfair Searches and Seizures (Bill of Rights) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The Bill of Rights series highlights the living and breathing document. Each anthology focuses on one civil right guaranteed by the amendments and traces its evolution throughout American history to the present. Primary documents — including landmark Supreme Court rulings — reveal the ongoing effort to define the exact meaning of the text and apply its abstract concepts to real-world cases. Secondary sources, including magazine articles and book excerpts, add an additional layer of analysis and commentary. Taken together, the volumes of The Bill of Rights series illuminate the defining ideals of American democracy.

Synopsis:

Outraged by royal officials' ability to search homes and even individuals at will, and seize whatever they considered "contraband," Americans were determined to limit the search and seizure powers of the new federal government. Since then, the Fourth Amendment has become the basis for numerous rules limiting the gathering and use of evidence by police and prosecutors.
