This text examines all topics typically covered in a three- or four-hour course in evidence. Emphasis is on the Federal Rules of Evidence, now adopted in most states. Should the reader desire additional material, ample footnotes provide easy access to leading cases, articles, and standard reference works. The sixth edition contains the restyled rules and all the new developments on the Confrontation clause. Dan Capra is the reporter, Judicial Conference Advisory Committee on the Federal Rules of Evidence, and Steven Saltzburg served as a consultant.
