The most pervasive change in this volume is the addition of new text, some of it reflecting new issues and developments, but most of it consisting of attempts to explain enduring issues of evidentiary law. Problems have been changed less than the text. The legal landscape is in constant flux, but most of the evidentiary problems that courts must face change far more slowly than do the doctrines used to address those problems. The text is designed for a four-credit course.

Through articles, book excerpts, cases, and statutes, the author encourages discussion of the legal system's role in domestic violence situations. Topics range from historical and basic issues, such as restraining orders and tort suits, to controversial ones, including marital rape, arrest and prosecution policies, and battered mothers charged with failure to protect their children from batterers. 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.

The eighth edition of Evidence Under the Rules: Text, Cases, and Problems, one of the most widely-adopted Evidence coursebooks ever published, has been thoroughly revised and redesigned to be even more teachable and student friendly. A new two-color design enhances the reading experience, and new text boxes (many with photographs) provide interesting background on select cases and additional perspectives on key issues. Many elements, however, remain the same, including: the book’s structuring around the Federal Rules of Evidence; carefully edited cases and secondary materials; and the inclusion of numerous problems that allow students to apply new concepts.

The Fourth Edition is updated to take account of new developments in the law, new regulations, and new cases. The most comprehensive updates are found in Chapter Four on the Clean Air Act and Chapter Five on the Clean Water Act. Chapter Four has been reorganized to provide professors and students with a new comprehensive section on climate change, including the EPA's many regulatory efforts to address greenhouse gas emissions from both mobile and stationary sources, critical U.S. Supreme Court decisions, and an overview of the Clean Power Plan, which is in litigation as the Fourth Edition goes to press. Chapter 5 includes a new approach to the "waters of the United States" element of Clean Water Act jurisdiction. This section now summarizes key U.S. Supreme Court interpretations from Riverside Bayview Homes, SWANCC, and Rapanos, then provides an overview of both the June 2015 "waters of the United States" rule and the litigation challenging that rule, emphasizing the key issues. Chapter Five now also includes an expanded discussion of stormwater and the two new U.S. Supreme Court cases on Clean Water Act jurisdiction over stormwater. As was true in the Third Edition, the Fourth Edition continues to increase the number of "The Rest of the Story" notes after cases. These notes trace the context and the aftermath of cases and their continuing implications. In addition, by Fall 2016, adopters of the Fourth Edition will have access to fully updated Power Point slides and a new Teachers Manual with links to videos and other teaching materials for use in class.
