In the next section, the work focuses on the doctrinal underpinnings of the Fourth Amendment, providing both description and critique of the U.S. Supreme Court's current search and seizure jurisprudence. It examines problems with the Court's definition of a "search" and "seizure" and the thorny subject of racial and ethnic profiling, among other topics.
The concluding section examines the future of the Fourth Amendment in light of new and emerging technologies and the war on terror.
This user-friendly, well-organized anthology will be of great value to students and scholars of the law, and anyone with an interest in the balance between individual rights and governmental power.
