This book studies modern criminal procedure and provides a quick reference to important classical and current court decisions from the U. S.

The question presents the general issues of the case, the answer represents the holding of the case or rule of law, the rationale is the court's analysis and reasoning behind the rule of law and the notes explore more of the subject area.
