John T. Parry and L. Song Richardson (Lewis & Clark Law School and University of Iowa - College of Law) have posted The Constitution and the Future of Criminal Justice in America (Cambridge University Press, 2013) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
This document contains the table of contents, notes on contributors, and introduction to The Constitution and the Future of Criminal Justice in America.
The chapters in this collection address a wide range of issues relating to criminal justice, from familiar topics such as the continuing problem of race and criminal justice, the right to counsel, and the exclusionary rule, to cutting edge issues relating to the intersection of criminal law with social science and neuroscience, to topics that are often overlooked in collections of this nature: immigration, terrorism, national security and transnational crime. Importantly, the goal of each chapter is not to rehash the past. Instead, each chapter looks forward to consider the future implications of legal doctrine and criminal justice policy.
