This Federal Rules of Evidence manual breaks new ground. Unlike prior manuals, which present some historical materials without including the versions of the rules that those materials discuss, this book traces each rule or subdivision from the earliest drafts to the current version, with the historical materials placed in proper context. Many of the materials, including the Reporter’s first drafts and commentaries, have never before been published. Redlining and the authors’ commentary make the progression easy to follow – and provide a goldmine for exam questions. Students, teachers, and practitioners will all find this book tremendously useful.
