Cited widely by courts and consulted regularly by thousands of attorneys across the nation, the Federal Rules of Evidence Manual provides the following for each Rule: the complete, current text; a current explanation by experts on federal evidence rules; comprehensive descriptions of salient cases; and the relevant legislative history.

• Comprehensive descriptions of salient cases decided since the Twelfth Edition.
