Evidence: A Problem-Based and Comparative Approach (3d. ed. 2011), 880pp, $95.00, Carolina Academic Press (Hardcover, ISBN-13 9781594606021)

First published in 2005, this casebook provides a comprehensive, problem-based approach to studying the rules of evidence. Key features of the casebook include in-depth problems that are designed to teach all the nuances of the rules, an enriched section on scientific evidence, application of the rules to electronic evidence, and appellate review of evidentiary rulings. Although organized around the federal rules, it includes coverage of selected state rules of evidence that differ significantly from the federal rules so as to facilitate inquiry into the policies underlying the rules of evidence.
