The Nutshell is intended as an introduction for students taking a first course in international criminal law as well as practitioners with little or no familiarity with the field. After a brief introduction to the history of international criminal law (from its origins through Nuremburg to the ad hoc tribunals for the Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda), it summarizes basic principles of international accountability (such as the doctrine of “legality”) and concepts of international criminal jurisdiction (including “universal” jurisdiction). Several chapters focus on the International Criminal Court, in particular its substantive jurisdiction (genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and aggression), modes of liability and available defenses. Additional chapters cover the purposes and procedures of extradition (and its alternatives, such as “rendition”) and mutual legal assistance (obtaining evidence abroad for use in criminal cases). Attention is also given to the major “transnational crimes,” including in particular terrorism, corruption, trafficking and organized crime. A final chapter addresses the “future” of international criminal law and alternatives to international prosecutions. The book is written so that readers will not require prior experience in the field of international law.

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 Poe's 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." Professor Stephen Garvey (Cornell) joins the casebook beginning with this new edition. The Sixth Edition, as in the past, includes some new cases, as well as updates in the notes that bring current issues of criminal law to the fore.

Max Parkman—autistic and whip-smart, emotionally fragile and aggressive—is perfect in his mother's eyes. Until he's accused of murder. Attorney Danielle Parkman can't deny her son's behavior has been getting worse—drugs and violent outbursts have become a frightening routine. But the diagnosis she receives from a top-notch adolescent psychiatric facility that Max is deeply disturbed—and dangerous—is too devastating to accept. Until she finds Max, weapon in hand, at the bedside of a fellow patient who has been brutally stabbed to death. Trapped in a maelstrom of doubt and fear and barred from contacting Max, Danielle's mothering instincts snap sharply into focus. The justice system is bearing down on them, so she must use her years of legal experience to find out the truth, no matter what that might be. But has she, too, lost touch with reality? Is her son truly a killer? www.SavingMaxBook.com

Legal Ease is a versatile book that addresses how laws evolve and change as if they were living, breathing entities that are a mirror reflecting societal change. This new third edition offers the reader an expansive and practical guide to the many aspects of law. Presented in three sections, the book explains the practice of law through all phases of the criminal justice system. Part One, Criminal Law Explained, offers a history of law, defines criminal conduct, and explains the tools attorneys use in their practice. Section Two, Criminal Procedure and Evidence, details the steps required to institute constitutional search, seizure, and arrest. It also provides a comprehensive description of the duties and responsibilities of prosecutors, defense attorneys, law enforcement, and court personnel. Section Three, A Walk Through the Criminal Justice System, takes the reader step-by-step through the process of a trial, from jury selection to verdict and sentencing, and finally to the appeal process. Defendants’ rights are discussed as they navigate through the criminal justice system. The ideas and principles behind the country's constitutional amendments are explained, with many case examples offered to illustrate. Additional topics new to this edition address privacy rights, picketing at funerals, free speech/cruelty to animals, youthful offenders and sentencing, strip search of students, sexting, deportation and minor drug cases, DNA testing, warrantless search, medicare scams, and workforce retaliation, among others. The inclusion of “Key Words” and “Questions for Review and Discussion” sections at the end of each chapter will prove invaluable to instructors and students. This comprehensive volume continues to give groups who are new to the scene, as well as those who aren’t, an easy-to-read book of reference for all those nuances the law continues to press onto the legal system.
