Controversies in Innocence Cases in America brings together leading experts on the investigation, litigation, and scholarly analysis of innocence cases in America, from legal, political and ethical perspectives. The contributors, many of whom work on these cases daily, investigate contemporary issues presented by innocence cases and the exoneration movement as a whole. These issues include the challenges faced by the movement, causes of wrongful convictions, problems associated with investigating, proving, and defining 'innocence', and theories of reform. Each issue is placed within a multi-disciplinary perspective to provide cogent observations and recommendations for the effective handling of these cases, and for what changes should be adopted in order to improve the American criminal justice system when it is faced with its most harrowing sight: an innocent defendant.

This interdisciplinary collection presents a scholarly treatment of how the constitutional politics of federalism affect governments and citizens, offering an accessible yet comprehensive analysis of the U.S. Supreme Court’s federalism jurisprudence and its effect on the development of national and state policies in key areas of constitutional jurisprudence. The contributors address the impact that Supreme Court federalism precedents have in setting the parameters of national law and policies that the states are often bound to respect under constitutional law, including those that relate to the scope and application of gun rights, LGBT freedoms, health care administration, anti-terrorism initiatives, capital punishment, immigration and environmental regulation, the legalization of marijuana and voting rights. Uniting scholarship in law, political science, criminology, and public administration, the chapters study the themes, principles, and politics that traditionally have been at the center of federalism research across different academic disciplines. They look at the origins, nature and effect of dual and cooperative federalism, presidential powers and administrative regulation, state sovereignty and states’ rights, judicial federalism and the advocacy of organized interests.

This casebook—containing longer excerpts than those found in most other books— includes cases from important Supreme Court opinions and material that places these cases and the issues they raise in a broad political, historical, and social context. The volume presents Supreme Court challenges and land mark decisions involving wartime protest and hysteria; the Great Depression; and conflicts over issues such as abortion. A focus on the “characters” who make up the stories of constitutional law—such as Dred Scott, Homer Plessy, Lillian Gobitis, Gordon Hirabayashi, Mary Beth Tinker, and Michael Hardwick—adds human faces and voices to the Supreme Court opinions, and introduces the fascinating players—with fundamental divisions of interest and values—who have had roles in making legal history. For individuals interested in constitutional law.

No area of public policymaking is more hotly debated than the use of governmental authority to institute certain enforceable standards of behavior in areas that have been the subject of moral controversy. Such issues as abortion, for example, are debated not on grounds of economic calculus but rather the moral and normative concerns of citizens, and typically evoke a reversal of the liberal-conservative division of views on the appropriateness of government interventionism. In Theodore Lowi's words, the politics of such issues is "more ideological, more moral, more directly derived from fundamental values, more intense, less utilitarian, more polarized, and less prone to compromise."This volume examines eight social regulatory policy issues: abortion, pornography, death penalty, gun control, affirmative action, church-state separation, official English, and gay rights. Each case study examines: -- the relevant issues and arguments; -- policy shifts over time; -- the roles of key political an institutional actors, including lobbies and interest groups; public opinion: the bureaucracy; the president, Congress, the judiciary; and state and local authorities.
