Om Federal Rules of Evidence in a Nutshell
This Nutshell, revised to reflect amendments to the Federal Rules of Evidence, including the restyling effective December 1, 2011, offers a clear, concise, and complete explanation of each Federal Rule of Evidence.

The United States Supreme Court's interpretation of the Confrontation Clause in Crawford/Davis and progeny is thoroughly analyzed as well. Even more exhaustive treatment is provided on the definition of hearsay, the "not hearsay" definition, the most commonly encountered hearsay exceptions, expert witnesses, and character evidence. Concrete illustrations are presented throughout.
