The Fourth Amendment

William J. Cuddihy

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the development of the concept of unreasonable search and seizure. The concept emerged in England after 1580 because the practice as well as the law of search and seizure had altered over the preceding century. The changes in practice were not only more drastic than those in the law but also more responsible for the appearance of the concept because they had the deepest impact on the lives and sensibilities of articulate Englishmen.
