Book Description

1 Feb 2007 0521033454 978-0521033459 New Ed
Adult Eyewitness Testimony: Current Trends and Developments provides an overview of empirical research on eyewitness testimony and identification accuracy, covering both theory and application. The volume is organized to address three important issues. First, what are the cognitive, social and physical factors that influence the accuracy of eyewitness reports? Second, how should lineups be constructed and verbal testimony be taken to improve the chances of obtaining accurate information? And third, whose testimony should be believed? Are there differences between accurate and inaccurate witnesses, and can jurors make such a distinction? Adult Eyewitness Testimony: Current Trends and Developments is crucial reading for memory researchers, as well as police officers, judges, lawyers and other members of the judicial system.

First Sentence
A true case, described using pseudonyms in Witness for the Defense (Loftus and Ketcham,1991), provides a powerful anecdote showing just how strongly witnesses can believe in their memories-even when their memories are false. Read the first page

3.0 out of 5 stars arcane but important 11 Feb 2013
Eyewitness testimony is often the most unreliable, yet frequently comes across with great self-confidence: 'I never forget a face', 'I always notice what people are wearing'. People are proud of their powers of observation and accurate recall. There is a Sherlock Holmes complex in all of us. Thus academics from the United States, Canada and St Andrews, after a 1991 symposium, decided to bring together all the latest research on the issue. This they did in this detailed and dense 18 chapter- volume. Again for the specialist. A shorter, less arcane volume summarising the evidence should have a wider readership.
