In the same tradition of prior editions, this Evidence: Common Law and Federal Rules of Evidence examines and presents each evidence topic in the following format:

Common Law: The author introduces this topic through narrative explanations of the common-law principles.
Federal Rules of Evidence: This edition presents the applicable Federal Rule of Evidence with a brief overview of how that rule changed the common law. Judicial opinions exploring contemporary issues then follow. This portion of the materials most closely resembles the classical law school casebook.
Relationship to Other Rules: At the end of each topic, the discussion centers on how the rule under study is part of a larger cohesive code and works in conjunction with the other rules.
Problems: To broaden students' learning experience and give them an opportunity to test the level of their understanding of basic principles, each subject area ends with hypotheticals taken from recent cases.

Recognizing that the subject of evidence is large and complex, the author makes no attempt to create the illusion that this complex area is more manageable than it actually is. Instead, this book is purposely comprehensive and all-inclusive in terms of case dicta, author commentary, and the breadth of issues (including constitutional issues) arising under each rule. The opinions are often longer and occasionally include transcript excerpts from the trial, to give students a better understanding of the substantive and procedural contexts in which these issues arise. In addition, the text itself answers all of the questions it poses.

Table of Contents includes:
The Structure of the Trial and the Presentation of Evidence;
An Introduction to Relevance;
Specific Evidentiary Rules Based on Relevance, Public Policy, and Unfair Prejudice;
Definition of Hearsay;
Exceptions to the Hearsay Rule;
Cross-Examination and Impeachment;
Writings;
Opinion Testimony and Scientific Evidence;
Privileges;
Shortcuts to Proof.
