An incomparably clear and contemporary introduction to the field, Constitutional Law decodes the "legalese," simplifies jurisprudence, and examines those specific provisions that govern the day-to-day work of criminal justice personnel while protecting the individual rights of whom they serve. Part one's highly organized sequencing and structure explains legal concepts and principles in digestible sections, breaking complex ideas down into parts and making them easier to swallow. The first chapter summarizes the organization and content of the Constitution, providing an overview of our judicial system and how cases reach the Supreme Court. The next five chapters provide in-depth coverage of constitutional restrictions on police authority to detain, arrest, use force, search for and seize evidence, engage in technologically assisted surveillance, interrogate suspects, and obtain confessions. The next three chapters cover the Fifth Amendment privilege against compulsory self-incrimination, the Fourth Amendment defense against highly intrusive bodily searches, Due Process requirements for witness identification procedures, a criminal defendant's right to counsel, and the constitutional safeguards applicable during the trial and punishment phases of a criminal case. The final chapter covers the constitutional and other legal protections criminal justice professionals enjoy in their capacity as employees, as well as their civil liability for violating the constitutional rights of others. The second part of the book contains approximately 200 pages of summarized cases which have been newly edited to ensure accessibility. These cases are specifically mapped to individual chapter topics to help you learn the doctrines and methods of constitutional argument, as well as how these can applied in a variety of prospective scenarios. * Updated with current constitutional decisions and precedents that reflect those issues of most concern to criminal justice professionals. * Each chapter begins with a outline, concludes with a summary, and includes boxed key terms and concepts. * A highly organized structure explains legal concepts and principles in digestible sections, breaking complex ideas down into parts and making them easier to grasp. * Part II contains briefs of key judicial decisions that exemplify how constitutional provisions covered earlier have been interpreted.

Die Wahl von Barack Obama im November 2008 markierte einen historischen Wendepunkt in den USA: Der erste schwarze Präsident schien für eine postrassistische Gesellschaft und den Triumph der Bürgerrechtsbewegung zu stehen. Doch die Realität in den USA ist eine andere. Obwohl die Rassentrennung, die in den sogenannten Jim-Crow-Gesetzen festgeschrieben war, im Zuge der Bürgerrechtsbewegung abgeschafft wurde, sitzt heute ein unfassbar hoher Anteil der schwarzen Bevölkerung im Gefängnis oder ist lebenslang als kriminell gebrandmarkt. Ein Status, der die Leute zu Bürgern zweiter Klasse macht, indem er sie ihrer grundsätzlichsten Rechte beraubt – ganz ähnlich den explizit rassistischen Diskriminierungen der Jim-Crow-Ära. In ihrem Buch, das in Amerika eine breite Debatte ausgelöst hat, argumentiert Michelle Alexander, dass die USA ihr rassistisches System nach der Bürgerrechtsbewegung nicht abgeschafft, sondern lediglich umgestaltet haben. Da unter dem perfiden Deckmantel des »War on Drugs« überproportional junge männliche Schwarze und ihre Communities kriminalisiert werden, funktioniert das drakonische Strafjustizsystem der USA heute wie das System rassistischer Kontrolle von gestern: ein neues Jim Crow.

This work attempts to explain changes in the legal conception of adolescence as a stage of life and as a transition to adulthood. The intended audience includes lawyers and others—such as parents, professionals, and kids—puzzled by trends labeled "children's liberation" and "the revolution in juvenile justice." Much cited and long recognized as an authority, it is considered a classic of law & society. Changes in legal conceptions of youth are interesting in their own right. They are also a useful way of examining important social, political, and economic changes. It is said that legal studies, "properly pursued, lead to a fuller understanding of the larger world of which the law and its institutions are a part." That is no less true when looking at "children" and "juveniles" through a legal lens. The law often compartmentalizes underage persons with bright lines and legal fictions such as "parens patriae" to allow leeway for them that would not be tolerable for adults. The law creates huge divides based on status and age. The standards against which to judge the exit from adolescence are concrete and measurable: a single chronological age. And an adult is anyone the state legislature says is adult. But life is not that simple, and the price we pay for sustaining such illusions is considerable. Adolescence is both a period in itself and a transition. This book takes seriously that status and the idea of transition, and attempts to explain the legal responses and concepts relevant to this important stage of life. The 2014 digital edition includes a new preface by the author and such quality formatting features as active Contents, linked chapter notes, original tables from the print edition, and a fully-linked and paginated Index, to allow continuity with the print edition, citation and referencing, and the convenience of readers.
