When you're a student, if you can't sell back your books, they often tend to sit on a shelf collecting dust. To paraphrase William Faulkner, "that's one I don't have to read anymore." There are the rare exceptions, and "Criminal Law and Procedure" by father and son lawyer team John M. Scheb is most definitely in that category. Whether I need to refresh my memory on a statute, supreme court case, or definition, this book is my go-to. Its scope is great, but the depth is there as well. A strong foundation is provided with the preface in each section explaining English common law, Blackstone's commentaries, and how an offense was defined in in the past up to contemporary state statutes. Some of the text can be a bit dry and obtuse, but the purpose of the book is not to entertain but to inform and educate. And in that the book does a spectacular job. Comprehensive, straightforward, and packed with facts essential for criminal law students.

I absolutely love criminal law, but this book couldn't have made it more boring. In addition, there is a glossary, but the key terms are not defined on the actual pages which makes for a lot of flipping back and forth. Overall, I think this is up there for one of the most dull textbooks I've been assigned to read so far.
Needed for college course. Easily re-sellable.
I only bought this book because i had to have it for college. I did not expect it to be to interesting but i was wrong. I actually really like this textbook and find it extremely interesting. The only problem that i have with it is that sometimes i feel it does not explain some topics enough for you to grasp the concept.
a gift no feedback or for a class ...
Great text book!! Very informative.
I chose this rating because it was worth 5 stars because the experience was worth the wait and it was in perfect condition.
