"In Forensic Psychology and Law, three internationally known experts provide exceptional coverage of a wide array of topics that address both the clinical applications of forensic psychology (e.g., offender treatment; competency, sanity, and risk assessments that inform legal decision making) and the role of psychological science in understanding and evaluating legal assumptions and processes (e.g., the law of confessions, jury behavior, and eyewitness identification). This excellent volume is destined to become a classic among introductory textbooks in forensic psychology." —Norman Poythress, Ph.D., Research Director and Professor, Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute, Dept. of Mental Health Law and Policy "Forensic Psychology and Law is a major contribution to the teaching of law and psychology.
