Anyone teaching crim pro/police who has not already seen Tracey Maclin’s new book, The Supreme Court and the Fourth Amendment Exclusionary Rule (OUP 2013) should do so before teaching Mapp, Linkletter, Alderman, Calandra and Leon. The book does not break new normative or empirical ground. Rather, it integrate Supreme Court history, both from the papers of the justices and the biographical literature, into the history of e-rule doctrine. The book is a goldmine for scholars and indispensable background for classroom teaching.
