This book is a leader in providing materials that match the ┐skills and values┐ theme emphasized in the MacCrate and Carnegie Reports. The forthcoming second edition will still include over fifty problems that allow the law professor to explore the practical impact of the theoretical concepts underlying criminal law. The new edition expands this orientation with several new problems, a new case study that examines issues from Jena Six, as well as new materials that recognize recent federal sentencing guideline changes. The book will retain its international and comparative notes with the addition of a problem that considers the increased influence of international matters. In keeping with the original theme of having a casebook with recent decisions, several new cases are inserted, with a few older ones removed. The authors plan to introduce with this casebook a website that will offer podcasts, syllabi, Powerpoints, and other teaching materials. In short, a text that is compact, student-friendly, flexible, both practical and theoretical, and hi-tech ┐ all in one novel package, including a teachers' manual with answers to every problem.
