Abstract

The editors of this book state in the Preface that “this volume is not a ‘how to guidebook.’ ” While this is certainly true, the chapters explaining legal issues (e.g., rules of evidence) offer what is essentially an advanced primer on evidentiary law as it relates to psychological testimony in civil and criminal trials. It is in this regard that the work has its greatest value.
