If you want to cover both investigative and adjudicative issues in Criminal Procedure, this new casebook will supply a firm foundation for your course. Created by an outstanding author team, COMPREHENSIVE CRIMINAL PROCEDURE fully reflects current thinking in the field.
The book takes a fresh, new approach to the subject:
goes beyond the basics of due process and right to counsel to address police practices, trial, and post-trial, including a full chapter on sentencing
draws on the authors' individual expertise in specific areas to add intellectual depth to the presentation
organized to facilitate teaching and learning, with carefully written notes explaining the issues and challenging students to consider the underlying ideas
all cases were chosen for their teaching value
Four main themes make COMPREHENSIVE CRIMINAL PROCEDURE exceptionally cohesive and realistic:
how the rules work in practice and what they mean for the system as a whole
the relationship between procedure and substance
race discrimination
historical background
