About

Overview

This straightforward introduction to criminal procedure combines case excerpts with clear, detailed legal discussion and analysis to equip readers with a solid understanding of the field. Widely acclaimed author Dr. Joel Samaha is known for his unique ability to help readers grasp the complexities of law by clearly and carefully presenting all sides of an issue. The exciting new Ninth Edition addresses the entire criminal procedure process--from search and seizure to post-conviction sentencing and review by appellate courts--while providing new or expanded coverage of such key topics as the changing political nature of the Supreme Court, forensic evidence, terrorism, enhanced interrogation, military courts, immigration law, mass domestic violence, gun control, and more.

Features and Benefits

  • Providing maximum learning reinforcement, each chapter begins with numbered learning objectives that are carefully matched to end-of-chapter summary sections and linked to corresponding quiz and test items.
  • "White Collar Crime: The Other World of Criminal Procedure" boxes in most chapters keep students on the cutting edge by presenting real-world criminal law issues from this increasingly high-profile area, which is overlooked in other criminal procedure texts that focus exclusively on traditional "street" crime.
  • Going well beyond the words in the principles, doctrines, and rules of criminal procedure examined in the text, "Case Excerpts" teach students to understand concepts by applying them to the facts of specific cases. Questions following each excerpt test students' knowledge and understanding of the principles, doctrines, and reasoning presented in the excerpt. Case Questions prompt students to evaluate, criticize, and propose alternatives to the parties' arguments and the decisions of the court as presented in the excerpt.
  • Providing students with an excellent overview, Samaha's classical perspective illustrates how the constitutional principles of criminal procedure have endured for centuries--even while courts and legislatures adapt them to meet society's ever-changing needs.
