Criminal Procedure: Cases, Readings, and Comparative PerspectivesRaneta Mack

Criminal Procedure

Cases, Readings, and Comparative Perspectives (Second Edition)
Edited by Raneta Lawson Mack

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-63487-404-5, 526 pages


Criminal Procedure: Cases, Readings, and Comparative Perspectives offers insight into the most compelling issues surrounding the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments. Through the use of selected United States Supreme Court cases and scholarly literature in the field, students will be guided step by step through the development of the law. Each section offers notes and questions designed to encourage critical thinking about individual issues, as well as the interrelationship of various concepts. Finally, this book distinguishes itself by presenting students with comparative perspectives on many of the important issues in criminal procedure — thereby challenging readers to think globally about the application of these principles.
