Overview

The new edition of this resource for students, practitioners, and others who need access to criminal justice information contains 125 new U.S. Supreme Court cases, as well as over 5000 terms, concepts, and names. Champion (criminal justice, Texas A&M International University), uses an interdisciplinary approach, pulling together key terms and concepts from diverse areas and illustrating how the terms apply in particular contexts. Following the Terms Section, there is an alphabetized and indexed section in which the most recent and significant Supreme Court cases are summarized—highlighting major facts, holdings, and rationales. An innovative feature of these listings is the full citation, including the first and last names of parties, organizations, or boards. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
