    Psychology Classics

    This section of the newsletter introduces you to a full text psychology classic that you can read and download courtesy of the All About Psychology website initiative to make important, insightful and engaging public domain works in psychology freely available.

    On The Witness Stand: Essays on Psychology & Crime by Hugo Münsterberg is a very important book by one of my all time favorite psychologists. Not only did he boast a great name and outrageous moustache but Münsterberg was also a passionate advocate of forensic psychology. An engaging and controversial figure Munsterberg was a key figure in the study of psychology within a legal context.

    Years ahead of its time, On The Witness Stand: Essays on Psychology & Crime explores issues that are just as important and relevant today e.g., witness memory, suggestibilty and false confessions.
