Summary
"Minds on Trial: Great Cases in Law and Psychology gives you an inside view of twenty of the highest-profile legal cases of the last fifty years. Drs. Ewing and McCann take you behind the scenes of each of these cases, some involving celebrities like Woody Allen, Mike Tyson, and Patty Hearst, and explain the impact such cases had on the fields of psychology and the law. Many of the cases in this book, whether involving a celebrity client or an ordinary person in an extraordinary circumstance, were determined in part by the expert testimony of a psychologist or other mental health professional."--BOOK JACKET
