Evaluating Eyewitness Identification Press Reviews

This volume is a gem. It is rare to find a volume so well done that it cannot be improved. Each of the seven chapters is concise, yet thorough...Volumes such as this one not only help to make psychologists more effective in the legal arena but also may well help increase their numbers while reducing the divide that has long separated law and psychology. Meanwhile, Evaluating Eyewitness Identification is an essential reference for any psychologist interested in testifying in court on eyewitness evidence. --PsycCRITIQUES
