Editorial Reviews

Sara C. Broaders
". . . [I]t clearly presents psychological issues in the forensic context in a very applied manner. . . an excellent choice for forensic psychology or psychology and law classes in many settings. . . I think students would find it a useful tool, and instructors would appreciate having such a variety of readings in one place. "
Amy Thistelwaite
“The proposed book offers something new to the field of forensic psychology . . . This text would be an extremely useful supplement to any psychology of crime text. I also like the way the book covers all applications of forensic psychology . . . For these reasons I would personally adopt the book for my course and I believe the book would have national appeal.”
