The criminal justice system has devised several procedural safeguards to protect defendants from erroneous conviction resulting from mistaken eyewitness identification. Mistaken Identification: The Eyewitness, Psychology and the Law reviews the empirical research bearing on the adequacy of those safeguards. This body of literature converges on the conclusion that traditional safeguards such as presence of counsel at line-ups, cross-examination, and judges' instructions, are ineffective safeguards against mistaken eyewitness identification. Expert psychological testimony on eyewitness memory, designed to educate the jury about how memory processes work and how eyewitness testimony should be evaluated, shows much greater promise as a safeguard against mistaken identifications and erroneous convictions. Mistaken Identification is an invaluable text for advanced psychology students, law students and researchers of memory.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...drives yet another nail into the coffin of the so-called criminal justice system. You could not find a more meticulous presentation of just how unreliable witnesses are." New Scientist
"Eyewitness evidence is often fraught with inaccuracies, nevertheless, it has the power of a sledgehammer and it can swiftly put an innocent man behind bars. Cutler and Penrod's book will assist the advocate in mounting an effective attack against this highly damaging evidence." Rene L. Valladares, The Champion
"It is an impressive work, though not without its flaws. It represents the state of the art and will unquestionably become required reading for anyone interested in the work in this area....The book is, overall, an impressive and important work." Solomon M. Fulero, Contemporary Psychology
