Featured Resource List



Walter P. Signorelli. The constable has blundered : the exclusionary rule, crime, and corruption. Carolina Academic Press, c2010.

KF9662.S56 2010


This book explains how the exclusionary rule undermines the purposes of the criminal justice system, increases crime rates, dispenses unequal justice, and encourages police corruption.  While the author argues that the rule should be eliminated or severely restricted in application, he also shows how other remedies may work more effectively to deter police from violating constitutional rights pertaining to search and seizure and interrogation practices. 









Calin Trenkov-Wermuth. United Nations justice : legal and judicial reform in governance operations. United Nations University Press, c2010.

K2100.T745 2010


This book discusses the UNís legal and judicial reform efforts in Kosovo and East Timor and argues that rather than helping to establish a sustainable legal system, the UNís approach detracted from it, as it confused ends with means.  It offers a full account of the UNís endeavors with the administration of justice in governance operations and suggests methods by which these efforts can be improved in the future.
