Written in the student-friendly style that characterizes Chemerinsky's Constitutional Law casebook, Criminal Procedure features cases, minor cases, and author-written essays while omitting both notes in the form of rhetorical questions and excerpts from law review articles. The chronological organization moves through the criminal justice process, from investigation to habeas corpus. Dynamic text guides students through understanding the law with tightly-edited cases, samples of legal pleadings arguing the issues, and perspectives from prosecutors, defense, counsel, judges, police, and victims alike. Each chapter has a consistent, systematic approach, beginning with an introduction laying out the nature of the issue, followed by a discussion on the history and development of the law. Then, examples of recent and seminal cases reveal how key criminal procedure issues have been raised, and an analytic approach toward resolving each issue shows what worked and why. The Second Edition has been thoroughly updated and provides analysis of the impact of important recent decisions, such as Arizona v. Gant, Herring v. U.S., Berghuis v. Thompkins, Maryland v. Shatzer, Montejo v. Louisiana, Perry v. New Hampshire, Frye v. Missouri, Lafler v. Cooper, and Williams v. Illinois. In addition, the Second Edition examines new decisions affecting right to counsel, right to fair trial, and habeas corpus law. New supplemental handouts and practice materials are available on the companion website.

Criminal Procedure: Investigation and Right to Counsel is for courses on criminal procedure law that focus on the issues pertaining to the investigation of criminal activities. It is a spin-off of Comprehensive Criminal Procedure, by the same team of authors, which covers both the investigatory and adjudicatory aspects of criminal procedure law. The casebook focuses primarily on constitutional criminal procedure law, but also covers relevant statutes and court rules. The casebook is deliberately challenging it is designed for teachers who want to explore deeply not only the contemporary state of the law, but also its historical and theoretical foundations. The casebook incorporates a particular emphasis on empirical knowledge about the real-world impacts of law-in-action; the significance of race and class; the close relationship between criminal procedure law and substantive criminal law; the cold reality that hard choices sometimes must be made in a world of limited criminal justice resources; and, finally, the recognition that criminal procedure law always should strive to achieve both fairness to the accused and justice for society as a whole.

Ein kritischer Report über ein Thema, das immer brisanter wird Die rasante Entwicklung der Informationstechnologien geht einher mit einem wachsenden Kontrollbedürfnis. Peter Schaar warnt vor der Tendenz, den Einzelnen als Risikofaktor zu betrachten, der beobachtet, registriert und bewertet werden muss. Er skizziert, wie sich demokratische Staaten aus Angst vor Angriffen von außen und vor den eigenen Bürgern zu Überwachungsgesellschaften entwickeln. Ohne unser Wissen werden immer mehr Daten von uns im Internet gesammelt, zu »Profilen« verarbeitet und zu wirtschaftlichen und Informationszwecken ausgewertet.

Drug Treatment Courts

Der suchtkranke Täter und der lösungszentrierte Verfahrensansatz im angloamerikanischen Strafrecht

Edgar Güldü beleuchtet das Modell der Drug Treatment Courts und – gemeinsam mit der Co-Autorin Frau Meryem Güldü – die zugrunde liegende Rechtstheorie. Der Autor zeigt, dass es sich bei den als Drug Courts bezeichneten Gerichtsprogrammen um einen neuartigen Diversionsansatz gegenüber suchtkranken Straftätern in den USA und den Ländern des Common Laws handelt. Drogengerichte heben sich nach Auffassung des Autors gegenüber dem Therapievorrang in unserer Rechtsordnung durch die Einbindung der Strafverfahrensbeteiligten in den Behandlungs- und Resozialisierungsprozess ab. Damit stehen die Drogengerichtsprogramme für eine sogenannte Problem-Solving Justice, einen lösungszentrierten Verfahrensansatz, der bisher zu Unrecht kaum Beachtung erfahren hat.

Seit über drei Jahrzehnten lebt Tuvia Tenenbom in New York. Als er sich 2015 für seine neue Großreportage erstmals auf eine Reise quer durch die USA begab, ahnte er nicht, was ihn erwarten würde: »Ich hätte nie gedacht, dass die Vereinigten Staaten so völlig anders sind, als ich immer angenommen hatte. Lange Jahre war ich überzeugt, dass ich sie ziemlich gut kennen würde. Aber ich bin mir da nicht mehr so sicher. Erst jetzt entdecke ich so nach und nach das wahre Amerika, Stück für Stück, Mensch für Mensch, Staat für Staat.« Tenenbom reiste von Florida bis nach Alaska, von Alabama bis nach Hawaii, vom Deep South und Bible Belt bis an die Großen Seen und die Westküste, sprach mit Politikern und Predigern, mit Evangelikalen, Mormonen und Quäkern, mit Rednecks und Waff ennarren, Kriminellen und Gefängnisinsassen, mit Indianern und Countrymusikern, Antisemiten und Zionisten, mit Obdachlosen und Superreichen und vielen, vielen mehr. Die USA rühmen sich, »das Land der Freien und die Heimat der Tapferen« zu sein. Das wahre Amerika jedoch, so Tenenboms bestürzende Erkenntnis, ist weder frei noch tapfer, sondern ängstlich darauf bedacht, alle Freiheiten einzuschränken. Es ist in sich zutiefst gespalten, rassistisch und hasserfüllt. »Kann sich die Menschheit auf die USA verlassen? Ich würde es nicht tun.«

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.

Following nearly 100 years of abolitionist efforts for reform, Article 102 of the Basic Law of the Federal Republic of Germany marked the constitutional end of legal capital punishment. What were the reasons behind this surprising decision taken by lawmakers to ban this ultimate punishment, particularly considering the fact that ruling public opinion of the time looked favorably on the death penalty? What effects did this constitutional ban have on the population, which rejected this ruling? In particular, this work examines the formation of parliamentary and public opinion in the period from 1949 to 1990, including the question of a renewed use of the death penalty.

English summary: To what degree can one argue about a criminal judgement? This question is posed when, among other things, a judge has to apply certain criteria that point to norms and values outside criminal law. German description: Welchen Spielraum hat ein Strafrichter in der Rechtsanwendung? Wie weit reicht seine Entscheidungskompetenz? Diese grundsatzlichen Fragen gewinnen im Strafrecht an Relevanz, wenn die Anwendung sogenannter normativer Tatbestandsmerkmale in Rede steht. Wahrend gangige Ansatze in der Strafrechtswissenschaft diese Gesetzeselemente primar im Hinblick auf den Tatervorsatz beleuchten, widmet Kuhli sich den normativen Merkmalen unter dem Blickwinkel ihrer richterlichen Anwendung. Er zeichnet hierfur zunachst die historische Entwicklung des Konzepts normativer Elemente nach, um auf dieser Basis ein eigenes sprachphilosophisches Modell zu entwerfen. Die sich anschliessende Untersuchung grundlegender Anwendungsprobleme behandelt den gegenwartigen Diskurs uber Beurteilungsspielraume in der Revision und Fragen der strafrichterlichen Bindung an zivilgerichtliche Entscheidungen.
