The book is known for its special focus on a rich selection of materials from multiple institutions, including primary materials from U.S. Supreme Court cases, state high court cases, state and federal statutes, rules of procedure, and police and prosecutorial policies, along with materials from social science studies. The new edition retains the casebook’s engaging writing style and division of materials into “teachable chunks.” Updated cases are chosen for their contemporary accuracy and feel, to complement essential cases of historical value. Taken together, the principal materials highlight procedural variety, focus on real process topics, provide the political context, and consider the impact of procedures on the various parties involved. The scholarly expertise and experience of the authors is especially reflected in the Criminal Procedure II materials, which includes coverage of prosecutorial charging, plea bargaining, and sentencing. Their frequent use of Problems gives instructors options for applying concepts and doctrines in realistic practice settings.

English summary: This 'liber amicorum' for Peter Schlosser contains contributions written by internationally well-known specialists in the field of international civil procedure and arbitration. The articles concentrate on controversial issues such as transborder cooperation, international jurisdiction, enforcement of foreign judgements and arbitral awards, especially in regard to European legislation and international conventions. They focus on very delicate subject matters such as neutrality of arbitrators, taking evidence abroad and the limits of national sovereignty. German description: Die hier gesammelten Beitrage sind zwei wesentlichen Arbeitsgebieten des Jubilars gewidmet, dem internationalen Verfahrensrecht und der Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit. Aus diesen Bereichen werden aktuelle und grundsatzliche Probleme von weltweit anerkannten Spezialisten diskutiert. Im Vordergrund stehen die Probleme grenzuberschreitender Sachverhalte bei der Rechtsdurchsetzung, sei es im Bereich der staatlichen Gerichtsbarkeit, sei es in der alternativen Streitbeilegung, insbesondere der internationalen Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit. Die Thematik gewinnt durch die Europaische Rechtsetzungskompetenz und Gesetzgebung neben den internationalen Konventionen, insbesondere den Bemuhungen der Haager Konferenz um einheitliche Regelungen fur transnationale Probleme, neue Dimensionen. Themen wie der neue Europaische Vollstreckungstitel uber unbestrittene Forderungen, die besonderen Probleme der Brussel II a-Verordnung, der Entwurf eines Haager Ubereinkommens uber die Gerichtsstandswahl stehen neben Grundsatzfragen wie Armut der Schiedspartei, Neutralitat des Schiedsrichters, Anerkennungsproblemen bei einer Scheidung nach judischem Recht und Fragen aus dem Bereich des europaisch-amerikanischen Justizkonflikts. Die Beitrage spiegeln die internationale Diskussion in aktuellen und sensiblen Bereichen des internationalen Verfahrensrechts im weitesten Sinne.
