Highly respected authorship defines Criminal Law and Its Processes: Cases and Materials. Sanford H. Kadish, Stephen J. Schulhofer, Carol S. Steiker, and new co-author Rachel E. Barkow are nationally recognized scholars. Their cohesive intellectual framework views the law as an instrument of social control, providing an analytical tool with which students can interpret and understand doctrine. Criminal Law and Its Processes: Cases and Materials focuses on developing an understanding of principles and rules applicable to all crimes, rather than the detailed and disjointed elements of any particular crime. Cases-and-notes pedagogy, with excerpted materials, questions, and problems, illuminate the material. Problems enhance students' understanding of the basic principles by testing their applications and interactions in the context of particular offenses. The Ninth Edition preserves the continuity with its predecessors and makes little fundamental change in organization or coverage, retaining nearly all the principal teaching cases, with recent cases and illustrations added. The text has been carefully edited throughout to enhance the transparency of the organization and accessibility of the notes and questions. Text has been added that guides students--before and after main cases--to understand what those cases are designed to illustrate. Overall, the book features increased clarity and ease of teaching while preserving the book's challenging and sophisticated content. A completely reorganized and revised chapter on group crime includes more student-friendly treatment of accomplice liability and conspiracy that will facilitate the mastery of basic doctrine while emphasizing important policy questions. A new section on punishing corporations for criminal conduct includes an analysis of deferred prosecution and non-prosecution agreements. The updated theft chapter explores the important modern crimes of honest services fraud and identity theft. New problems also test students' understanding of traditional theft offenses as applied to modern technology and intellectual property. The chapter on rape has been dramatically revised with current examples of debates over force and consent as well as new notes on male rape victims and human trafficking. Revised coverage of the death penalty provides a balanced treatment of the issue, incorporates the latest empirical research, and offers new notes on the potential causes of racial discrimination. An updated chapter on homicide includes a completely new section on felony murder. Also revised is the treatment of proportionality; it includes recent Supreme Court case law under the Eighth Amendment and challenges to life without the possibility of parole sentences. The question of what to punish is now explored through the lens of teenage bullying. Finally, new sentencing materials have been introduced, including a case study of Bernie Madoff's sentencing. Features Highly respected authorship Kadish, Schulhofer, Steiker, and new co-author Barkow are nationally recognized scholars Cohesive intellectual framework views the law as an instrument of social control provides an analytical tool with which students can interpret and understand doctrine Cases-and-notes pedagogy includes excerpted materials, questions, and problems Develops an understanding of principles and rules applicable to all crimes sees beyond the detailed, disjointed elements particular crimes Helpful problems enhance students understanding of basic principles test their applications and interaction in the context of particular offenses

During the coming decades, the digital revolution that has transformed so much of our world will transform legal education as well. The digital production and distribution of course materials will powerfully affect both the content and the way materials are used in the classroom and library. This collection of essays by leading legal scholars in various fields explores three aspects of this coming transformation. The first set of essays discusses the way digital materials will be created and how they will change concepts of authorship as well as methods of production and distribution. The second set explores the impact of digital materials on law school classrooms and law libraries and the third set considers the potential transformation of the curriculum that the materials are likely to produce. Taken together, these essays provide a guide to momentous changes that every legal teacher and scholar needs to understand.

Constitutional Rights: Cases in Context, Second Edition places primary emphasis on how constitutional law has developed since the Founding, its key foundational principles, and recurring debates. By providing both cases and context, it conveys the competing narratives that all lawyers ought to know and all constitutional practitioners need to know. Teachable, manageable, class-sized chunks of material are suited to one-semester courses or reduced credit configurations. Generous case excerpts make the text flexible for most courses. Cases are judiciously supplemented with background readings from various sources. Innovative study guide questions presented before each case help students focus on the salient issues, challenging them to consider the court’s opinions from various perspectives, and suggesting comparisons or connections with other cases. Key Benefits: Revised doctrinal areas with newer cases. Updated background contextual material to reflect current scholarship. A highly accessible and engaging structure that examines the competing narratives that pervade the development of American constitutional law since the founding. Related cases are grouped together into “assignments” and make for a reasonable amount of reading for each topic. A wealth of photographs, maps, and primary documents to bring the cases to life.

Pokerface und Unschuldsmiene Befinden wir uns im Würgegriff unserer Gefühle? Oder vermögen wir unsere Emotionen zu kontrollieren? Spüren wir, wenn wir emotional werden, und spüren wir es rechtzeitig? Wie kündigt sich eine emotionale Reaktion in unserem Inneren an? Und sehen andere, was in uns vorgeht? Verrät uns das Gesicht unseres Gegenübers, was er oder sie gerade empfindet? Interpretieren wir Gefühlsausdrücke richtig? Und wie leicht lassen wir uns täuschen? Können wir lernen, unausgesprochene Gefühle bei uns und bei anderen sensibler wahrzunehmen und in angemessener Weise mit dieser Information umzugehen? So viele Fragen – und so wichtig für unser tägliches Miteinander. Der renommierte Psychologe Paul Ekman entfaltet in diesem Buch ein faszinierendes Panorama der Erkenntnisse aus der Emotions- und Gesichterforschung. Er erläutert, wie Gefühle entstehen und wie sie sich in unserer Mimik äußern. Und er zeigt, wie wir dieses Wissen in unseren zwischenmenschlichen Beziehungen praktisch anwenden können. Damit ist sein Buch beides: eine spannende Reise in ein facettenreiches Forschungsfeld und ein Leitfaden für einen bewussteren Umgang mit den eigenen Gefühlen und den Emotionen anderer. Die 2. Auflage enthält ein zusätzliches Kapitel über "Lügen und Emotionen". Niemand in der Welt hat Gesichtsausdrücke so intensiv untersucht wie Paul Ekman. In Gefühle lesen präsentiert er – klar, lebhaft und leicht zugänglich – seine faszinierenden Beobachtungen über die offenen und versteckten Ausdrücke von Gefühlen, denen wir Tag für Tag Hunderte von Malen begegnen, die wir aber so oft falsch verstehen oder gar nicht wahrnehmen. Seit Darwins Der Ausdruck der Gemütsbewegungen bei den Menschen und den Tieren hat es kein derart breit angelegtes und einsichtsreiches Buch mehr zu diesem Thema gegeben. Oliver Sacks Paul Ekman hat mit Gefühle lesen ein wunderbares Buch vorgelegt, das helfen möchte, Emotionen richtig zu erkennen und zu interpretieren. Gehirn & Geist Paul Ekman, Pionier der Mimikforschung, eröffnet mit seinem neuen Buch Gefühle lesen allen die Chance, Gefühle besser zu verstehen. Hamburger Abendblatt Ein herausragendes Beispiel populärwissenschaftlicher Literatur. New Scientist Gefühle lesen wird jeden Leser emotional intelligenter machen.

Aus den Besprechungen: "Unter den zahlreichen Einführungen in die Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung bildet dieses Buch eine erfreuliche Ausnahme. Der Stil einer lebendigen Vorlesung ist über Niederschrift und Übersetzung hinweg erhalten geblieben. In jedes Kapitel wird sehr anschaulich eingeführt. Sinn und Nützlichkeit der mathematischen Formulierungen werden den Lesern nahegebracht. Die wichtigsten Zusammenhänge sind als mathematische Sätze klar formuliert." #FREQUENZ#1
