With Harr and Hess's legalese-free text, you'll gain a firm understanding of our often-complex Constitution and criminal justice system. To ground you in the laws that shape the system and our society, the authors present you with a clearly organized, 'bird's-eye view of the topic, supported by over 200 summarized cases that introduce you to the most influential and pertinent cases. Harr and Hess also devote considerable time to an exploration of the Fourth and Fifth Amendments, relevant because of their application to issues relevant to criminal justice: reasonable search and seizure, double jeopardy, and testifying against oneself.
