Practice Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, Fifth Edition provides extensive discussion and current citations of the hundreds of important cases interpreting the provisions. The first six chapters follow the sequence of the sentencing guidelines, progressing from the setting of the offense level adjustment and departures to the determination of the sentence. Chapters 7 and 8 cover plea and sentencing procedure and appeals. Chapter 9, discusses post-conviction procedures. The remaining seven chapters address the constitutionality of the guidelines, statutory challenges, environmental crimes, antitrust crimes, tax and money laundering offenses, fraud offenses, and sentencing of organizations, and the past, present and future of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.

Accompanying the 2 volume set is a CD-Rom containing Archival Appendices. The disk is broken down into three parts:

  • History of the Guidelines
