This coursebook is the work of nationally renowned experts on the subject of constitutional-criminal procedure. It is ideally suited for a survey course designed to explore and critically examine how the U.S. Supreme Court has dealt with a wide range of highly controversial issues that arise at various stages of the criminal process. Considerable pains have been taken to set forth the views of all members of the Court in such landmark cases as Batson, Leon, Mapp, and Miranda and such important recent cases as Apprendi v. New Jersey and Dickerson v. United States.
