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.

This law school casebook addresses substantive and procedural areas of importance in white-collar criminal practice. The book covers a variety of substantive crimes, including perjury, false statements, false claims, obstruction of justice, mail and wire fraud, public corruption, insider trading, conspiracy, RICO, and money laundering. It then tackles procedural issues critical to white-collar practice: grand jury, discovery, the fifth amendment right against self-incrimination as applied to testimony and physical evidence, the attorney-client privilege, representation issues, plea bargaining and cooperation agreements, and parallel proceedings. Throughout, the materials emphasize ethical issues facing criminal law practitioners, and highlight the considerations that affect prosecutors' choices in pursuing and charging cases, and defense counsel's challenges in defending against such choices. The materials also cover, in discrete chapters, mens rea issues, entity liability, and the theory and practice of sentencing under the advisory (but still important) Federal Sentencing Guidelines for both individuals and organizations. This book differs from others in: its comprehensive coverage and thus the opportunity it affords professors to tailor the course to their own preferences in subject-matter; its balance between practical and theoretical issues; its use of materials from real cases (such as the Lewinsky prosecution, the Arthur Andersen case, and the like); its balance between substantive and procedural issues; and its detailed coverage of sentencing issues.

A Vital Explanation of Water Law and Policy Because demand for and access to quality water far exceeds the current supply, it is increasingly critical to understand the state and federal laws and policies that govern water rights. From farming, fishing, and biology to manufacturing, mine operation, and public water supply, water regulation affects all strata of society. Determining U.S. Water Rights: Different Systems for Different Needs United States Water Law: An Introduction is a concise overview of law and policy related to U.S. water rights and regulation of water quantity and quality. This wide-ranging book reviews the two major systems used to determine rights in the western and eastern states. It explores these different systems, which are based on the divergent factors affecting the two regions – the immense amount of government-owned property and arid conditions in the west, and ownership of riparian land in the east. The author also covers western states that adhere to the "hybrid" system, which recognizes early riparian rights predating adoption of later appropriation systems, and he explains that most states recognize at least some riparian rights to the use of surface water. Special sections detail regulatory considerations such as Native American rights, environmental regulation, nuisance and tort law, and social theory. Tools to Aid Further Research To elucidate basic principles and differences in water law, this book contains Internet links to state water codes and contact information for regulatory agencies that handle applications. It presents key federal case law and statutes and other features to reinforce the material. For law practitioners and environmentalists to property/business owners acquiring or retaining water rights, this is the ideal primer on water law, with numerous tools to aid in further research.
