Written by experts in eyewitness psychology and an experienced trial attorney, the new Fifth Edition of Eyewitness Testimony: Civil and Criminal offers courtroom-ready trial techniques and the latest psychological research concerning such issues as jurors' beliefs about eyewitness testimony, the factors that may impede perception and memory, and illustrates the consequences and effects of eyewitness testimony in both criminal and civil trials. Among the various issues discussed are:

  • Understanding the eyewitness's memory as the real crime scene;

  • Evaluating eyewitness cases from the prosecutor's, plaintiff's and defendant's perspectives;

  • Telling good social science from "junk";

  • Analyzing memory evidence as "trace evidence" and what that means;

  • Mobilizing eyewitness science without the eyewitness expert.
