Description:

This book combines criminal law, criminal procedure and the Constitution from a practitionerrsquo;s point of view. Drawing on the authorrsquo;s vast professional experience, it gives readers what most survey books do not, the ability to analyze criminal justice situations from a legal perspective. Discussion of the Constitution and U.S. Supreme Court decisions are integrated throughout each chapter. Edited case excerpts appear throughout and retain original court language, detailed analysis and questions to illustrate fundamental legal concepts. Building on its more effective treatment of case law, the book clearly shows the relationship between criminal law, criminal procedure the Constitution.
