Transcript

  • 1.  This popular casebook, through the selection of classic and modern cases, provides an excellent tool for teaching students the common law foundations of the criminal law and modern statutory reform, including the Model Penal Code. Along the way, the casebook considers modern controversies (e.g., shaming punishment, rape law, self- defense by battered women, euthanasia, the role of culture in determining culpability), and creatively uses literature (e.g., examining insanity through Edgar Allen Poes The-Tell Tale Heart) and even brain teasers to confront (as the Preface states) ;the Big Questions . . . that philosophers, theologians, scientists, and poets, as well as lawyers, have grappled with for centuries.
  • 2.  Joshua Dressler, professor of criminal law at The Ohio State University talks about activism in the Supreme Court, abused women, Miranda rights, and the 4th Amendment.
  • 3.  “Ordering this book was quick and easy, considering it was over the holidays, that was great. ”Jessica “We covered a good deal of the material - as any Criminal Law course would. ”Zhi Li “The only flaw with the book is the slightly humorous way that Dressler tends to quote sources he wrote and use his own essays as sources. ”GMUSL2L
