Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This text examines the legal system through the lens of psychological concepts, methods, and research, discussing the ethical, moral, legal, and psychological "gray areas" of the law, and addressing topics such as criminal profiling, police stress, and women and minorities in law school. Material is organized around four key dilemmas: rights of individuals versus the common good, equality versus discretion, discovering the truth versus resolving conflicts, and science versus the law. In this fifth edition, there is added emphasis on cognitive psychology and eyewitness memory. Also new are boxes on experimental methodology and on specific cases. Wrightsman teaches psychology at the University of Kansas-Lawrence. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
