Format: Hardcover
We used this casebook for our criminal procedure adjucation course (bail to jail). The authors apparently hatched this cockamamie idea about writing a non-traditional criminal procedure casebook, and the result of their "efforts" is this 1500 page paperweight. The idea of the casebook was to not only include substantive constitutional criminal procedure law, but to incorporate cases about how the individual states deviate from the federal rules while weaving in policy aspects of the rules. The end product however was a frankenstein-ish collection of various rules and policy matters, with no real coherency or direction. The book was all over the place. In their efforts to create a non-traditional casebook, the authors have not succeeded on any front, whether it be policy or substantive law.
The problem is that unless students thoroughly understand the substantive law in an area, it is difficult to understand all the deviations and related policy matters. You can't do both at the same time because you will not learn either very well. There is a reason why criminal procedure adjudication has been taught in the "traditional" method for so many decades; it's EFFECTIVE. This book should just be taken off the market.

This is a very thorough book and clearly written. You need to cover about 20-30 pages in the course of a 4.0 credit, one semester CRIM PRO class to finish the whole book. This can be challenging, but seeing as how many CRIM PRO courses are separated into two semesters, it is not so bad to finish the entire book. The first note after each case is the most important. It is important to supplement this book with lots of practice problems. Also, some supplementary cases may be necessary as the Roberts' court makes new law, but 99% of the book is current law.

I received this book extremely quickly. This was convenient seeing as how it was the only book I received in time for school. While I did not need the book in the end, I was able to return the book for a full refund, which was also very prompt.
