One of the most fascinating sub-divisions within the rapidly growing field of psychology and law is the area of deception detection. Traditionally this area has been characterised by a number of approaches which have analysed different aspects of deception such as verbal content, non-verbal behaviour, and polygraph testing. The last few years' intensive research has resulted in an impressive corpus of new knowledge about issues such as cross-cultural deception, the detection of simulated amnesia and false confessions, lie-catching expertise and how best to train professionals in detecting deception. This book provides a state-of-the-art account of current research and practice, written by an international team of experts and will be a valuable resource for academics, students, practitioners and all professionals within the legal domain who need to tackle questions of credibility and reliability.

Industry Reviews

'It will be a valuable resource for forensic practitioners, academics and students. It is also the perfect place to start for the curious of casual reader who is simply seeking an introduction to the science of detecting deception. Timely, well written and free of hyperbole, The Detection of Deception in Forensic Contexts shines the bright light of empiricism on the shadowy art of deception.' Applied Cognitive Psychology '... outstanding book ... an excellent and updated review on the topic... of great value. It is an indispensible reference for all those students and academics approaching the detection of deception area, an excellent update for active researchers, and a useful tool for practicioners.'
