A fully updated version of the standard casebook, American Criminal Procedure: Cases and Commentary offers a clear, cogent, and captivating presentation of the current state of criminal procedure in federal and state courts. The casebook highlights all major criminal procedure decisions by the Supreme Court and analyzes how federal and state courts have responded to those decisions. The new edition challenges the analytical powers of law students, with detailed and authoritative commentary, and extensive discussion of practical problems. New features include more headnotes; additional scholarly commentary on such topics as the exclusionary rule, Miranda, and jury nullification; detailed discussion on race-based stops and encounters; and an extensive section on sentencing guidelines. Each edition of American Criminal Procedure takes a fresh look at the most lively issues and puts recent cases into historical perspective.
