Summary

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 Eighth 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 issues as terrorism/homeland security, the USA-PATRIOT Act, searches and seizures, military tribunals, recent changes to sentencing guidelines, and more.
