"Michael J. Saks and Barbara A. Spellman have succeeded brilliantly in doing what too few have attempted and many fewer still have accomplished. This book casts a bright light onto the dusty suppositions of evidence doctrine and employs contemporary psychological science to take the measure of the modern rules. Elegantly written and comprehensive in scope, Saks and Spellmans work establishes a new standard for interdisciplinary scholarship." -- David L. Faigman,John F. Digardi Distinguished Professor of Law, University of California, Hastings
"In this book, two of the worlds most knowledgeable experts on psychology and law show that the legal rules of evidence are based largely on conjectures about how people think about evidence. Saks and Spellman persuasively demonstrate that some of those conjectures are well-founded, some not, and some are completely at odds with the scientific literature. Who knew?" -- Jonathan J. Koehler,Beatrice Kuhn Professor of Law, Northwestern University School of Law
"Anyone seeking a treasure trove of new ideas will come away motivated, as the authors admirably achieve their noble goal of bringing attention to the need for more psychological research related to the Rules." * PsycCRITIQUES *
