More About This Textbook


Designed to meet the need for a short survey course or a traditional investigation course, this sophisticated cases-and-notes book is derived from the authors' successful Comprehensive Criminal Procedure. By concentrating on the investigation stage without detouring into other areas, this new casebook offers the scope and depth of coverage necessary for a thorough course, in a straightforward and accessible presentation.

Comprehensive and current, the casebook addresses:

• policing materials
• due process and the right to counsel
• prosecutorial charging decisions
• grand juries
• plea bargaining and sentencing, topics often overlooked in other books but crucial to an understanding of criminal procedure

Criminal Procedure: Investigation and Right to Counsel gives both students and instructors what they need:
• detailed coverage of the Fourth Amendment
• excellent cases, selected and edited to portray the key issues
• outstanding authorship from a team of recognized leaders who blend a wide range of backgrounds and expertise
• "law and society" approach, grounded in empirical research and the true impact of court decisions
• thoughtful, thematic organization
• well-written notes that challenge students to think about the ideas and questions raised
• appropriate balance of explanatory text and secondary material, which keeps the book to a manageable length
