This book invites the legal and psychology communities to work together in solving some of our most pressing social problems. It examines four controversial areas involving people's perceptions of others. The book is therefore a guide to understanding the valuable contribution of social scientific research in policy formulation in the law, and it addresses the role of psychology in substantive law and legal decision making.
