From the Back Cover:

Now in its third edition, Criminal Procedure: Constitution and Society illustrates the best of both textbook and casebook formats. It soars past other texts by giving the reader a deeper understanding of criminal procedure and the cases that have shaped American criminal justice.

As the preface states, "The heart of American law lies in the cases." The heart of the American criminal justice system, therefore, lies in the way that these cases shape our understanding of crime and constitutionality. Criminal Procedure: Constitution and Society presents these issues fairly and thoroughly, with additional features that are uniquely tailored to students in criminal justice, criminology, sociology, and political science. The unique features of this text will make the study of criminal procedure a comprehensive, educational experience.

About the Author:

Marvin Zalman began his career in criminal justice education in northern Nigeria. He and his wife Greta, then recent graduates of Brooklyn Law School, were inspired in their college years by President John F. Kennedy's challenge to young Americans: "ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country:" As Peace Corps volunteers they were assigned to Nigeria and from 1967 to 1969 were lecturers in the law faculty at Ahmadu Bello University in the city of Zaria. Zalman taught classes on criminal law and criminal procedure and decided to study these subjects in greater depth. He authored a casebook on Northern Nigerian criminal procedure and conducted a study of sentencing patterns in local criminal courts. Upon returning to the United States, he began studies in a new field of scholarship at the School of Criminal Justice at the State university of New York at Albany, from which he holds his Ph.D. degree. From 1971 to 1980 he taught at the School of Criminal Justice at Michigan State University and came to Wayne State University in Detroit, where he served as chair of the Criminal Justice Department from 1980 to 1987. From 1978 to 1980, Professor Zalman was the executive director of sentencing guideline projects for the State of Michigan and in 1984 for the State of New York. He has published research and scholarship in the areas of criminal sentencing, criminal procedure, domestic violence, prisoner's rights, and assisted suicide. He teaches classes on criminal justice policy, criminal law, the judicial process, and criminal procedure. Marvin Zalman believes passionately that constitutional criminal procedure is the most important course that criminal justice students can take because it deals with individual liberty. His parents fled to the safety of America during World War 11, and he believes he owes his life to the power and decency of the United States that is embodied in its constitutional values. The message he wishes to convey is that every day, each police officer, defense lawyer, prosecutor, probation officer, and judge, who does his or her job properly keeps the promise of liberty alive.
