This straightforward introduction to criminal procedure combines case excerpts with clear, detailed legal discussion and analysis to give students a solid understanding of the field. The book's longtime success can be attributed to its widely acclaimed author and his unique ability to help readers grasp the complexities of law by clearly and carefully presenting all sides of an issue. Dr. Samaha has a true passion for wanting students to understand why procedures are as they are--instead of simply memorizing them. As a result, while most Criminal Procedure texts focus exclusively on how to, Samaha combines how and why. The Eighth Edition addresses the entire criminal procedure process--from search and seizure to post-conviction sentencing and review by appellate courts--while providing extensive case updates and 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.

This book is designed for a complete Criminal Procedure course. This book is not designed exclusively for future criminal law practitioners. Rather, it is designed as a roadmap for those who wish to learn about governmental limitations on police and / or trial procedures in the criminal context. The presentation of the materials is focused, rather than scattergun. Each case is presented, lightly edited, with a series of focused questions and notes following it. The importance of the questions cannot be overemphasized. Each student coming into class will (or should) have thought about the questions while reading the case. This should immensely improve the quality of class discussion. At the same time, the fact that the students have the questions in advance has a wonderful palliative effect on students, putting them at ease because they know the questions in advance. Additionally, the book is carefully edited with an eye towards the number of hours typically available for a class. The police practices material is designed to be taught in a three-hour class. The entire book is designed for a four-hour class. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.
