For nearly fifteen years, Criminal Procedure: Principles, Policies and Perspectives (and their softcover versions, Criminal Procedure: Investigating Crime and Criminal Procedure: Prosecuting Crime), written by Joshua Dressler and George C. Thomas III, have sought to inspire students to analyze and critique constitutional and non-constitutional criminal procedure doctrine. The book features careful case selection and editing that includes dissenting and concurring opinions when useful in understanding the law. The Fifth Edition covers the recent changes in constitutional law, including in the Fourth Amendment (e.g., "search" law; broader warrant exceptions; and the recent narrowing of the exclusionary rule); interrogation law (e.g., changes in Miranda v. Arizona and in the sixth amendment right to counsel that make it easier for police to interrogation suspects and defendants); pretrial identification of suspects, and the confrontation clause. As in the past, the casebook includes "in the trenches" material, designed to give students an idea of what life is like inside the squad car, the interrogation room, and the courtroom.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of modern and historical understandings of the pre-trial rights guaranteed by the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments. Rather than focusing on holdings, it focuses on concepts and rationales. Carefully edited majority, concurring, and dissenting opinions convey the development of criminal constitutional law, exposing recurring themes and ideas across cases and over the decades. The Supreme Court's classic and recent cases are organized around a politically agnostic conceptual approach, allowing students to grasp competing theories for understanding the key concepts underlying searches and seizures, interrogations, and the exclusionary rules. "Points for Discussion" following each case focus students on the points of contention among the justices, facilitating class preparation. The included online version links to historical materials and legal sources on Westlaw® and the Internet.

Criminal Procedure: Investigation and Right to Counsel is for courses on criminal procedure law that focus on the issues pertaining to the investigation of criminal activities. It is a spin-off of Comprehensive Criminal Procedure, by the same team of authors, which covers both the investigatory and adjudicatory aspects of criminal procedure law. The casebook focuses primarily on constitutional criminal procedure law, but also covers relevant statutes and court rules. The casebook is deliberately challenging it is designed for teachers who want to explore deeply not only the contemporary state of the law, but also its historical and theoretical foundations. The casebook incorporates a particular emphasis on empirical knowledge about the real-world impacts of law-in-action; the significance of race and class; the close relationship between criminal procedure law and substantive criminal law; the cold reality that hard choices sometimes must be made in a world of limited criminal justice resources; and, finally, the recognition that criminal procedure law always should strive to achieve both fairness to the accused and justice for society as a whole.
