Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...a comprehensive overview of the research done on juror decision making from several academic perspectives: social psychology, behavioral decision theory, cognitive psychology, and behavioral modeling....Although the papers are written from an academic perspective, the theories are readily applied to actual juries since much of the research was conducted through realistic mock-jury simulation studies." Criminal Lawyers Association Newsletter

"...a useful reference, providing side-by-side comparisons of the four models of juror decision making that have generated the most research activity." Dorothy K. Kagehiro, Contemporary Psychology
