A Life and Death Decision

  • Categories: Law

With a life in the balance, a jury convicts a man of murder and now has to decide whether he should be put to death. Twelve people now face a momentous choice. Bringing drama to life, A Life and Death Decision gives unique insight into how a jury deliberates. We feel the passions, anger, and despair as the jurors grapple with legal, moral, and personal dilemmas. The jurors' voices are compelling. From the idealist to the "holdout," the individual stories—of how and why they voted for life or death—drive the narrative. The reader is right there siding with one or another juror in this riveting read. From movies to novels to television, juries fascinate. Focusing on a single case, Sundby sheds light on broader issues, including the roles of race, class, and gender in the justice system. With death penalty cases consistently in the news, this is an important window on how real jurors deliberate about a pressing national issue.

Objection

Why do we consider incest wrong, even when it occurs between consenting adults unable to have children? Why are words that gross us out more likely to be deemed "obscene" and denied the protection of the First Amendment? In a world where a gruesome photograph can decisively influence a jury and homosexual behavior is still condemned by some as "unnatural," it is worth asking: is our legal system really governed by the power of reason? Or do we allow a primitive human emotion, disgust, to guide us in our lawmaking? In Objection, psychologists Debra Lieberman and Carlton Patrick examine disgust and its impact on the legal system to show why the things that we find stomach-turning so often beco...

Investigative Criminal Procedure

  • Categories: Law

This book provides a comprehensive overview of modern and historical understandings of the pre-trial rights guaranteed by the Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments. Rather than focusing on holdings, it focuses on concepts and rationales. Carefully edited majority, concurring, and dissenting opinions convey the development of criminal constitutional law, exposing recurring themes and ideas across cases and over the decades. The Supreme Court's classic and recent cases are organized around a politically agnostic conceptual approach, allowing students to grasp competing theories for understanding the key concepts underlying searches and seizures, interrogations, and the exclusionary rules. "Points for Discussion" following each case focus students on the points of contention among the justices, facilitating class preparation. The included online version links to historical materials and legal sources on Westlaw® and the Internet.
