Product Description: Written by an unparalleled team of authors with a wide range of backgrounds and expertise, Comprehensive Criminal Procedure, Third Edition, is a sophisticated cases-and-notes book that covers all the main topics for comprehensive criminal procedure courses, including police practices, pretrial, trial, and appellate and collateral review.

The third edition has been updated throughout, and a number of chapters have been substantially revised to reflect recent developments. The authors have carefully edited all of the cases and notes to allow the addition of new material without significantly lengthening the book. In addition, Andrew Leipold, one of the nation's leading criminal procedure scholars, joins the author team, bringing a wealth of knowledge and teaching experience to the new edition.

Comprehensive Criminal Procedure, Third Edition, retains the key features that have made it a classroom success:

  • Comprehensive coverage and well-written notes.
  • Appropriate balance of explanatory text and secondary material.
  • Thematic organization, structured around important main themes:
    • Real-world implications of alternative regulatory regimes
    • The power of legislatures to indirectly eliminate procedural rights through changes in substantive criminal law
    • Institutional relationships among courts, legislatures, prosecutors, and juries
    • Criminal procedure law as a direct consequence of the effort to end racial discrimination in the United States
    • Growing concern about the risk of erroneous convictions
    • The impact of limited resources

New to the Third Edition, which has been carefully edited with an eye to increased accessibility:

  • Substantial revision of Chapter 3, Right to Counsel, fully incorporating recent and important developments in the areas of ineffective assistance and self-representation, and improving both content and organization of cases and notes throughout the chapter.
  • Reworking of Chapter 6, the Fifth Amendment, taking into account the Supreme Court's recent line of Miranda decisions, as well as the recent dismantling of Michigan v. Jackson doctrine regarding the Sixth Amendment right to counsel.
  • A more thematic approach to the adjudication half of the casebook(Chapters 8-17), highlighting
    • the key institutional relationships (and occasional conflicts) between courts, legislatures, prosecutors, and juries that affect the handling of cases within the criminal justice system, as seen most notably in such areas as charging decisions, plea bargaining, and sentencing law and policy; and
    • the latent (but perhaps inherent) tension between lay participation in criminal cases (i.e., the jury) and the core criminal justice values of accurate and unbiased adjudication.
  • Addition of new Chapter 10, Pretrial Screening and the Grand Jury, focusing primarily on the grand jury and consolidating material that previously appeared in several different chapters.
  • Significant expansion and reorganization of Chapter 11, Scope of the Prosecution, which now includes venue, as well as speedytrial, joinder, and severance.
  • Up-to-the-minute treatment of Crawford doctrine in Chapter 14, The Jury and the Criminal Trial, covering the scope and meaning of the defendant's Sixth Amendment right to confront the witnesses against him.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”.

4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer.

5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
