One of the best-selling casebooks of all time, Modern Criminal Procedure provides the authoritative overview of modern criminal procedure, including the nature and scope of the Fourteenth Amendment, due process, retroactivity, federal supervisory power, and state rights protection. Modern Criminal Procedure and its companion books, Basic Criminal Procedure and Advanced Criminal Procedure, have been the most widely adopted in their field since first appearing in 1965. The eleventh edition includes new chapters on sentencing and habeas corpus and provides insight into such topics as the right to counsel, transcripts, poverty, equality, the adversary system, police, pretrial release, preliminary hearings, grand jury reviews, reprosecution, and double jeopardy. The new edition of Modern Criminal Procedure covers all significant Supreme Court opinions through January 2005 and other major developments such as monitoring attorney-client meetings, Carnivore electronic surveillance, and biometric technology.
