Description

Market-leading CONSTITUTIONAL LAW AND THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM, 6th Edition, uses real-world illustrations, succinct case summaries, and proven learning tools to equip readers with a solid understanding of our often-complex Constitution and criminal justice system. Avoiding confusing "legalese", the book features more than 200 plainly written, summarized cases that introduce readers to the most influential and relevant cases. It also thoroughly covers the Fourth and Fifth Amendments, exploring their application to issues relevant to criminal justice: reasonable search and seizure, double jeopardy, and testifying against oneself. The sixth edition includes expanded discussions of the First and Second Amendments as well as cutting-edge coverage of such high-profile topics as immigration, terrorism/homeland security, death row, and many others.
