Eyewitness testimony by Elizabeth F Loftus( Book )

19 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As pertinent today as when it was first published more than a decade ago, this engaging and highly praised study makes the psychological case against the reliability of the eyewitness." "By shedding light on the many factors that can intervene and create inaccurate testimony, Elizabeth Loftus illustrates how memory can be radically altered by the way an eyewitness is questioned, and how new memories can be implanted and old ones altered in subtle ways. She thus calls into question today's widely held assumption of eyewitness authority over the details of a crime or other events." "Eyewitness Testimony provides a sobering counterpoint to today's theatrical reliance on eyewitness accounts in the media, and should be required reading for trial lawyers, psychologists, jurors, and anyone who considers the chilling prospect of confronting an eyewitness accusation in a court of law."--Jacket
True witness : cops, courts, science, and the battle against misidentification by James M Doyle( Book )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"True Witness describes the latest battles in a one-hundred-year war between scientists studying the shortcomings of human memory and a legal system that relies on eyewitness testimony as a central tool of identifying and convicting suspects - too often wrongly. As researchers have struggled to solve the mystery of "How do eyewitness mistakes happen?" they have met resistance from prosecutors and courts more concerned with convictions than justice." "Through a cast of brilliant scientists, street-wise cops, glamorous former prosecutors - all haunted by the history of a wrongly convicted man and the agonized cop and victim who sent him to prison - James M. Doyle sheds light on the difficulties balancing the disquieting findings of science with the requirements of the legal system. This is a troubling tale of the intersection of personal ambition, legal and political principles, and scientific inquiry."--Jacket
