Criminal Procedures: Cases, Statutes, and Executive Materials is noted for its comprehensive coverage and excellent selection and editing of cases and materials. The book is known for its special focus on a rich selection of materials from multiple institutions, including primary materials from U.S. Supreme Court cases, state high court cases, state and federal statutes, rules of procedure, and police and prosecutorial policies, along with materials from social science studies. The new edition retains the casebook’s engaging writing style and division of materials into “teachable chunks.” Updated cases are chosen for their contemporary accuracy and feel, to complement essential cases of historical value. Taken together, the principal materials highlight procedural variety, focus on real process topics, provide the political context, and consider the impact of procedures on the various parties involved. The scholarly expertise and experience of the authors is especially reflected in the Criminal Procedure II materials, which includes coverage of prosecutorial charging, plea bargaining, and sentencing. Their frequent use of Problems gives instructors options for applying concepts and doctrines in realistic practice settings.

"That relatively few criminal cases in this country are resolved by full Perry Mason-style strials is fairly common knowledge. Most cases are settled by a guilty plea after some form of negotiation over the charge or sentence. But why? The standard explanation is case pressure: the enormous volume of criminal cases, to be processed with limited staff, time and resources. . . . But a large body of new empirical research now demands that we re-examine plea negotiation. Milton Heumann's book, Plea Bargaining, strongly and explicitly attacks the case-pressure argument and suggests an alternative explanation for plea bargaining based on the adaptation of attorneys and judges to the local criminal court. The book is a significant and welcome addition to the literature. Heumann's investigation of case pressure and plea negotiation demonstrates solid research and careful analysis."—Michigan Law Review

The Fourth Edition of Criminal Litigation & Legal Issues in Criminal Procedure is designed to incorporate the substantive law of criminal procedure into a trial advocacy course. The traditional trial advocacy course is concerned almost exclusively with "skills training" (e.g., learning techniques for cross-examining a witness), but does not incorporate much, if any, substantive law. Conversely, a traditional substantive course on criminal law or criminal procedure focuses exclusively on legal principles and doctrine, but does not involve training students in courtroom advocacy skills concerning substantive law. In Criminal Litigation & Legal Issues in Criminal Procedure, author Brent Newton merges elements from these two types of courses into one and seeks to bridge the gap between them. The eBook versions of this title feature links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

The 6th edition of National Security Law not only updates the leading casebook in this field with recent developments, but adds new chapters on extraterritoriality, cyber operations, bulk collection, the structure of habeas, and the procedural path to terrorism trials. Because the continuing rapid growth of the field and of relevant materials has made them harder to teach, this edition also for the first time makes substantial changes in their presentation to make them more teachable. The co-authors have provided questions before each principal case to guide the reader; streamlined the notes and questions after the cases to make them easier to read; and summarized basic principles in a new feature at the end of each chapter. The result is a book that is not only current and comprehensive, but significantly easier to read and teach.
