Description - Eyewitness Testimony by Elizabeth F. Loftus

This 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 changed in subtle ways. "Eyewitness Testimony" provides a counterpoint to today's theatrical reliance on eyewitnesss accounts in the media and should be required reading for trial lawyers, psychologists, jurors, and anyone who considers the prospect of confronting an eyewitness accusation in a court of law.
