"Bringing together the contributions of academics and practitioners who are leading authorities in the field, this handbook is essential reading for anyone wanting to update their knowledge and practice of investigative interviewing. Adopting an international perspective, this comprehensive text examines how changes in institutional practices, priorities and values in the post 9/11 climate have impacted the questioning of suspects. Empirical research and case studies are used to illustrate some of the common errors that can occur during an investigation.
Among the topics covered are the interrogation of terror suspects for criminal justice and intelligence gathering purposes, suspects’ strategies and decision-making, false confessions, eyewitness testimony, the questioning of vulnerable witnesses, cross-examination in the courtroom and the detection of truths and lies in forensic contexts.
Informed by scientific research and knowledge about best practice this international handbook will be a valuable resource for researchers, students and legal professionals for many years to come."
