The new Third Edition of Dressler & Thomas, Criminal Procedure: Principles, Policies and Perspectives is available for spring 2007 adoption. It contains the very latest cases, including the Courts attempt to make sense of its revolutions in sentencing and confrontation clause doctrine, as well as the Courts long standing effort to make the Fourth Amendment and the Miranda doctrine intelligible. This book is just right for you if you want a book that (1) has notes and problems that facilitate a variety of teaching methods; (2) has fuller opinions, and concurring and dissenting opinions, thus encouraging a dynamic Socratic teaching process; (3) is short enough to cover fully in two 3-credit courses, each of which can be taught out of its own soft-cover version; (4) features unusual supplementary sources for example, an account of a case in which an innocent man was twice convicted of murder; and (5) includes material from, in the trenches designed to give students an idea of what life is like inside the squad car, the interrogation room, and the courtroom.
