"This is a timely and extremely interesting analysis of the manyways in which psychological science can contribute to a moreaccurate understanding of various psychological issues often raisedin legal proceedings. This book will be useful, and a very goodread, for the general public as well as the psychological and legalcommunities."
--Sharon S. Brehm, Indiana University Bloomington, Presidentof the American Psychological Association (2007)
"This book is an indispensable guide--for scholars andpractitioners alike--to the psychological science of the legalsystem. Its pages are filled with important, hard-won lessons thatwe can turn to our advantage or ignore at our peril."
--Daniel Gilbert, Harvard University
"The legal system is also a system of perception, emotion,interpersonal relations, and judgment. It is thus crucial thatlawyers, social scientists and indeed the broader public understandits psychological dimensions. This volume assembles key examples ofthe recent strides psychologists have made in understandingcourtroom processes and the psychosocial dimensions that shape howlaw works in a variety of settings from workplaces to the media. Itwill be a vital resource for both professionals andstudents."
--Craig Calhoun, President, Social Science ResearchCouncil
"Incrementally, chapter by chapter, this world-class collectionof scholars and researchers upends our common sense understandingsof human prejudice and the law's ability to control it. Yet, justas importantly, it brings to the fore a vastly deeper understandingof these issues. It is more than a state of the art collection. Itis a classic collection that, for a long time, will beindispensable to discussions of prejudice and the law, as well asthe relationship between science and the public good."
--Claude M. Steele, Stanford University
