Extremely student friendly, CONSTITUTIONAL LAW AND THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM, 6th Edition, equips you with a solid understanding of our often-complex Constitution and criminal justice system. The text avoids confusing "legalese," focusing instead on real-life examples to illustrate the material. Its effective learning framework and tools help you master chapter concepts, while more than 200 succinctly written, summarized cases introduce you to the most influential and relevant cases. The text devotes considerable time to 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.
