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.

Other chapters cover how domestic violence impacts different groups. Additional topics include guns, confidentiality and safety, and victims as welfare recipients, workers, tenants, and applicants for asylum. The materials foster critical thinking among students, as they include contradictory points of view.

This popular casebook, through the selection of classic and modern cases, provides an excellent tool for teaching students the common law foundations of the criminal law and modern statutory reform, including the Model Penal Code. Along the way, the casebook considers modern controversies (e.g., "shaming" punishment, rape law, self-defense by battered women, euthanasia, the role of culture in determining culpability), and creatively uses literature (e.g., examining insanity through Edgar Allen Poe's The-Tell Tale Heart) and even "brain teasers" to confront (as the Preface states) "the Big Questions . . . that philosophers, theologians, scientists, and poets, as well as lawyers, have grappled with for centuries." Professor Stephen Garvey (Cornell) joins the casebook beginning with this new edition. The Sixth Edition, as in the past, includes some new cases, as well as updates in the notes that bring current issues of criminal law to the fore.
