Eyewitness Testimoney

Loftus, Elizabeth F.
Publisher:  Harvard University Press, Cambridge MA
Year Published:  1996   First Published:  1979
Pages:  272pp   ISBN:  978-0674287778
Loftus makes the psychological case against the eyewitness. Beginning with the basics of eyewitness fallibility, such as poor viewing conditions, brief exposure, and stress, Loftus moves to more subtle factors, such as expectations, biases, and personal stereotypes, all of which can intervene to create erroneous reports. Loftus also shows that eyewitness memory is chronically inaccurate in surprising ways.
