Concise and well-written, this second edition of Robert Bloom and Mark Brodin's successful paperback guide provides students with a clear roadmap to understanding Criminal Procedure, and serves as the perfect companion to your casebook.
The Second Edition is coherently organized to parallel the coverage of most Criminal Procedure courses, and begins with a short overview of Criminal Procedure, followed by chapters on the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth amendments. A useful appendix reviews and relates major concepts.
Students understand far more than case-by-case decisions through:
charts and diagrams that illustrate major concepts
chapter overviews that contain accessible summaries of the controlling law
progressively difficult examples that challenge students to apply basic concepts to hypothetical situations
explanations that help students review the material and reinforce their understanding.
This Second Edition includes:
expanded introductory material on state constitutional protection
a new section on entrapment
new problems and material to reflect all the latest developments.
