When the authors created the first edition of Comprehensive Criminal Procedure, they tied it to contemporary thinking in the field and made it reflect the realities of the course as it is actually taught, covering both investigative and adjudicative topics. For the Second Edition, they revise and refine their materials to present the very latest developments in the field.The casebook builds on the strengths that gained it so many adoptions:comprehensive coverage of all the main topics for a criminal procedure course that treats police practices, trial, and post-trial -- including a full chapter on sentencing, an important subject that other books often fail to detailexcellent case selection and editing to portray the key issuesexpertise of the authors, who draw on their varied backgrounds to bring intellectual depth and sophistication to the book'law and society' approach, grounded in empirical research and the real-world consequences of court decisionsthoughtful, thematic organization around five main points: real-world implications of alternative regulatory regimes, the power of legislatures to indirectly eliminate procedural rights through changes in substantive criminal law, modern law of criminal procedure as a direct result of the effort to eliminate racial disparities in the U.S., implications of limited resources, and an emphasis on history, viewing criminal procedure as informed by its pastwell-written notes that challenge students to carefully consider the ideas and questions raisedappropriate balance of explanatory text and secondary material to ensure a manageable lengthsubstantial chapter on the increasingly important topic of plea bargainingThe Second Edition responds to changes in the law, as well as to user feedback:new discussion of 'critical stages' in the chapter on Right to Counseltimely coverage of post-9/11 issues, such as profiling, terrorism investigations, and detentionadditional coverage of FISA and of recent new emphasis on substantive appellate reviewtighter editing of casesreorganization within chapters for greater clarityrevised and updated Teacher's Manual
