Featured Resource List

Cliff Roberson,  Dilip K. Das. An introduction to comparative legal models of criminal justice. CRC Press, 2008.

K5001.R62 2008

 

This book presents the theme that a country’s legal model to a great extent determines the character of its police and corrections as well as its legal system. The book begins with a brief overview of the five legal models. The continental (civil) system, characterized by an inquisitorial nature and practiced in most European countries, is discussed, followed by the common law model, which is known for its adversarial quality and is used in most English-speaking countries. The religion-based Islamic system and the rehabilitation-oriented Marxist system are also profiled. Those systems that are still emerging or are hybrid in nature are characterized as mixed.

 

 

Thomas K. Clancy. The Fourth Amendment : its history and interpretation. Carolina Academic Press, c2008.

KF9630.C53 2008

 

This book comprehensively treats United States Supreme Court caselaw and takes a structural approach to the Fourth Amendment, addressing foundational questions, such as: What is a search? What is a seizure? What does the Amendment protect? Who does it protect? When is it satisfied? When does the exclusionary rule apply? The book is organized by topic so a reader can have ready access to current doctrine and is able to examine in additional sections how current doctrine developed. The historical events and the Court’s development of search and seizure principles provide context to, and perspective on, current doctrine.
