Confessions in the Courtroom
The causes of confessions, the acceptability of confessions extracted under duress and the interrogation procedures used by police are among the topics explored in this volume. The authors examine how the North American legal system has evolved in its treatment of confessions over the past 50 years, evaluate the process for determining the admissability of confession testimony and provide research findings on jurors' reactions to voluntary and coerced confessions.
