    DescriptionThis book provides a comprehensive, up-to-date discussion of the contemporary debates at the interface between psychology and criminal law. The topics surveyed include critiques of eyewitness testimony, the jury, sentencing as a human process, the psychologist as expert witness, persuasion in the courtroom, detecting deception, and psychology and the police. Kapardis draws on sources from Europe, North America and Australia to provide an expert investigation of the subjectivity and human fallibility inherent in our system of justice. He also provides suggestions for minimalizing undesirable influences on crucial judicial decision making.
