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 text organizes cases over four periods: a 25-year period from 1890 to 1914, in which most of today's issues were foreshadowed; a 25-year period from 1915 to 1939, in which the 'rule of reason' forced courts to investigate the actual consequences of business practices; a 35-year period from 1940 to 1975, in which the per se rule and industry concentration provided the predominant models for analysis; and the modern period of now almost 40 years, which is a synthesis of the second and third periods. The new Fifth Edition retains enough of the first three periods to provide important intellectual and economic context, but it expands upon, even more fully, the recent developments of antitrust policy. All major Supreme Court authority is covered, including the 2013 Actavis 'reverse payments' and Phoebe Putney 'hospital regulation' cases, as well as the 2010 Merger Guidelines and developments in lower court treatment of tying, bundled pricing and mergers.

As with the previous three editions, this book offers an interested reader insights into the ever-changing parameters of family law. Recent approaches to nonmarital cohabitations are discussed, premarital and marital agreements, surrogacy and assisted reproduction in the context of the 2017 Uniform Parentage Age, and the evolution of same-sex marriage after Obergefell v. Hodges. The division of marital property and the presumptive status of child support formulae are discussed, as is federal expansive control over collection procedures. Recent cases and federal and state statutes are provided as illustration and the best interests of the child are defined through cases illustrating custody, termination of parental rights, and the possibility of adoption. The book seeks to provide the reader with a grasp of what is currently the law and provide a glimpse into where the law may be going.

In teaching and in practicing family law, the availability of pertinent codified material and recent commentary is indispensable. This compendium of statutory materials supplements the casebook by these same authors. The book is divided into four sections: (1) Uniform Laws and Model Legislation, (2) Federal Statutes, (3) State Statutes, and (4) International Treaties. These four sections illustrate the evolving perspective of family law, nationally and internationally. Included are statutes addressing, among others topics, premarital and marital agreements, testimony by minors, professional responsibility standards, mediation and arbitration, proof of paternity and surrogacy, and international treaties to protect children and women. Each statute is preceded by citations to pertinent legal periodicals, providing explanation and parameters for practice. As a quick reference or to provide a survey of what has been legislated to address a particular situation, this compendium of codes and commentary is an indispensable complement to the classroom or to practice.
