From Pulitzer Prize winner Raymond Bonner, the gripping story of a grievously mishandled murder case that put a twenty-three-year-old man on death row. In January 1982, an elderly white widow was found brutally murdered in the small town of Greenwood, South Carolina. Police immediately arrested Edward Lee Elmore, a semiliterate, mentally retarded black man with no previous felony record. His only connection to the victim was having cleaned her gutters and windows, but barely ninety days after the victim's body was found, he was tried, convicted, and sentenced to death. Elmore had been on death row for eleven years when a young attorney named Diana Holt first learned of his case. With the exemplary moral commitment and tenacious investigation that have distinguished his reporting career, Bonner follows Holt's battle to save Elmore's life and shows us how his case is a textbook example of what can go wrong in the American justice system. Moving, enraging, suspenseful, and enlightening, Anatomy of Injustice is a vital contribution to our nation's ongoing, increasingly important debate about inequality and the death penalty.

Incapacitation

The one, sure way that imprisonment prevents crime is by restraining offenders from committing crimes while they are locked up. Called "incapacitation" by experts in criminology, this effect has become the dominant justification for imprisonment in the United States, where well over a million persons are currently in jails and prisons and public figures who want to appear tough on crime periodically urge that we throw away the key. How useful is the modern prison in restraining crime, and at what cost? How much do we really know about incapacitation and its effectiveness? This book is the first comprehensive assessment of incapacitation. Zimring and Hawkins show the increasing reliance on restraint to justify imprisonment, analyze the existing theories on incapacitation's effects, assess the current empirical research, report a new study, and explore the links between what is known about incapacitation and what it tells us about our criminal justice policy. An insightful evaluation of a pressing policy issue, Incapacitation is a vital contribution to the current debates on our criminal justice system.

"This is a comprehensive introduction to the study of crime and criminological theory for criminology courses. The authors take a critical sociological approach, which emphasizes the relationship between gender, class, race, age, and crime. Definitions of crime and the measurement of crime are subjected to a critical analysis that focusses on the social construction of crime and crime rates. The book addresses historical, feminist, and comparative perspectives highlighting the major types of crime and victimization patterns. It is of most interest to those who teach criminology out of a sociology department, those who are sociologists teaching the course out of CJ, or any instructor for whom a critical approach is key"--

Many law professors aim to probe deep ethical issues in class. But they need to cover the material that the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination requires. The Rotunda Nutshell fulfils that need as it digests the Model Rules in an engaging, analytical, and often critical way. In a surprisingly pithy manner, this book places the Rules in an historic context that lets the student understand problems with prior versions of the Rules and the Model Code. The Nutshell also analyzes the American Law Institute's Restatement of the Law Governing Lawyers, Third. This approach frees up precious class time for important normative issues. And, this Nutshell helps your students come up with better answers to your Socratic questions than you anticipated.

Criminal Procedure: Constitutional Constraints Upon Investigation and Proof is intended for use in an introductory Criminal Procedure course that focuses on issues generated by the investigative efforts of law enforcement entities. The topics addressed include: searches and seizures, entrapment, confessions, identification procedures, and the exclusionary rules. The Eighth Edition adheres to the practical and flexible approach that has characterized the text from the start. The textual material at the beginning of each chapter and between main opinions is still concise, focused on the foundational essentials that enhance understanding of core concepts. The problems at the end of subsections and chapters, all based on actual federal and state cases, have been updated with some raising novel issues. They serve to expose students to cutting-edge questions. They also furnish opportunities to test comprehension of doctrines by applying them to concrete situations and to refine exam-taking skills. The opinions are limited to those decided by the United States Supreme Court. A core objective of the text is still to present sufficient materials to enable students to gain an appreciation of the richness and complexity of the variety of issues in the field. The Eighth Edition includes edited versions of the most significant opinions handed down since the Seventh Edition was published and incorporates notes that capture the essence of other important rulings. A few significant opinions have been supplanted and now are the subject of summarizing notes. One brief foundational chapter¿which addressed the right to assistance of counsel at trial¿has been omitted. The foundation is now provided by a substantial note that introduces the following chapter.
