The Psychology of evidence and trial procedure
Kassin and Wrightsman's book concentrates on the single most important determinant of verdicts -- the evidence and court procedure. It is divided into four parts: (1) an overview and historical perspective; (2) seven substantive topics like eyewitness accounts, confessions, and character evidence; (3) an examination of the major stages of trial procedure; and (4) a provocative discussion of the role that psychology does, and should, play in the judicial process. Written in non-technical language, this book should have a broad appeal to students, researchers and litigants alike.
`Chapters are extremely well written and documented. The work is highly recommended for advanced undergraduates, graduate students and legal professionals.' -- Choice, March 1986
