Extremely student friendly, CONSTITIONAL LAW AND THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM, 5e equips you with a solid understanding of our often complex Constitution and criminal justice system. The text avoids confusing “legalese” but instead focuses on real-life examples to illustrate text material. Its unique--and effective--learning framework and tools help you truly 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. In addition, the Fifth Edition’s cutting-edge coverage includes such high-profile topics as immigration, terrorism/homeland security, death row, and more.
