Written with a real passion for communicating the meaning behind the principles criminal procedure, Samaha's text focuses on not just the "how to," but the "why"-providing case excerpts and meaningful legal analysis as well as emphasizing the need for a balance of government power and the liberty/privacy of individuals as a central, and very timely, theme of his book. This current Seventh Edition addresses the entire criminal procedure process, from search and seizure to post-conviction sentencing and review by appellate courts, while providing timely case updates and topic coverage in key areas such as terrorism and homeland security, the USA-PATRIOT Act, searches and seizures, military tribunals, new sentencing guidelines, and more.
