Foundation Press Publishes Criminal Law Stories (35th Book in the Law Stories Series)

Criminal Law StoriesFoundation Press has published Criminal Law Stories (2013), by Donna K. Coker (Miami) & Robert Weisberg (Stanford):

This collection of case stories illustrates the balance, continuity, and evolution in substantive criminal law doctrine in light of the social and political contexts in which those doctrines are perennially tested. These stories focus on the pre-litigation behavior of defendants, raising important moral and cultural questions about human nature and human society and how social norms get translated into workable legal doctrines. They survey the typical variety of doctrines addressed in a standard criminal law course, elucidating the classic themes of common law jurisprudence.

Other titles in the Law Stories Series (for which I serve as Series Editor) are:
