Product Description

This Criminal Law and Its Processes: Cases and Materials casebook demonstrates once again that authors Kadish and Schulhofer know how to build on success. Maintaining best-seller status in a crowded field like Criminal Law requires equal attention to developments inside and outside the classroom. Criminal Law and Its Processes: Cases and Materials meets the challenge with characteristic intellectual integrity.

Longtime users will recognize the hallmarks of this superior treatment:
Nationally recognized scholars Sanford Kadish and Stephen Schulhofer bring insight and acuity to every page;
Comprehensive coverage of guilt, punishment, exculpation, as well as rape, homicide and theft;
Cohesive intellectual framework - viewing the criminal law as an institution for imposing blame and punishment as a means of societal control;
Cases chosen for their proven teaching value, combined with notes, excerpted materials, questions, and problems for maximum pedagogical effectiveness;
Problems test students' understanding of applications and interactions of legal principles in the context of particular offenses;
Full coverage of the Model Penal Code;
Addresses not only the conceptual and moral framework of criminal law, but also practical litigation realities and the ethical responsibilities of the criminal defense attorney.

This edition introduces a wealth of new material into the notes and carefully updates traditional topics:
Developments in crime and control policy, including important trends in incarceration, capital punishment, and implications for racial justice;
New forms of punishment and control, such as "Megan's law" notification, "shaming," and sexually violent predator confinement;
Recent developments in the uses and limits of incapacitation;
New commentary on classic cases, such as Regina v. Prince;
Substantial updating and reorganization of rape material, combining more concise coverage with greater depth in treatment of emerging issues and statutory solutions;
Refined and streamlined section on mental disorder;
Scrupulous editing of note material for greater clarity and accessibility.
