Park on the Purpose of the Confrontation Clause
Roger Park has published a symposium piece called "Is Confrontation the Bottom Line?," at 19 Regent L. Rev. 459 (2006-07)(available from HeinOnline). In it, he argues that the Supreme Court would be better off trying to identify the underlying goals of the Confrontation Clause instead of simply saying (in essence) that "the purpose of confrontation is confrontation."
