Witness for the Defense Book Description :

"The study of memory had become my specialty, my passion. In the next few years I wrote dozens of papers about how memory works and how it fails, but unlike most researchers studying memory, my work kept reaching out into the real world. To what extent, I wondered, could a person's memory be shaped by suggestion? When people witness a serious automobile accident, how accurate is their recollection of the facts? If a witness is questioned by a police officer, will the manner of questioning alter the representation of the memory? Can memories be supplemented with additional, false information?" The "passion" Loftus describes in the lines above led her to a teaching career at the University of Washington and, perhaps more importantly, into hundreds of c...

The Art of Witness Preparation Book Description :

Written by an experienced Texas trial attorney, The Art of Witness Preparation provides guidance on preparing witnesses to testify effectively and persuasively at civil trials, hearings, and depositions. Unlike most literature devoted to trial advocacy, this book focuses on the witnesses' performance in the courtroom instead of the lawyer's, addressing an often neglected angle for the civil trial attorney. The author divides witness preparation into seven distinct parts: (1) the witness interview; (2) explaining deposition procedures; (3) explaining trial and hearing procedures; (4) preparing the witness for cross-examination; (5) preparing the witness for direct examination; (6) discussing witness appearance and demeanor; and (7) role-playing and pr...

The Moral Witness Book Description :

The Moral Witness is the first cultural history of the "witness to genocide" in the West. Carolyn J. Dean shows how the witness became a protagonist of twentieth-century moral culture by tracing the emergence of this figure in courtroom battles from the 1920s to the 1960s—covering the Armenian genocide, the Ukrainian pogroms, the Soviet Gulag, and the trial of Adolf Eichmann. In these trials, witness testimonies differentiated the crime of genocide from war crimes and began to form our understanding of modern political and cultural murder. By the turn of the twentieth century, the "witness to genocide" became a pervasive icon of suffering humanity and a symbol of western moral conscience. Dean sheds new light on the recent global focus on survivors...
