Eyewitness research has focused mainly on stranger identification, but identification is also critical for the "familiar stranger." Understanding how variability in an eyewitness's familiarity with the perpetrator may influence recall and recognition accuracy will facilitate swifter and more just resolutions to crime. Familiarity and Conviction in the Criminal Justice System explores the concept of familiarity, ranging from complete unfamiliarity (as with a total stranger) to very familiar other (friends and family).

Brandon L. Garrett, Duke University School of Law, Rutgers Given how often familiarity is at issue in criminal investigations and trials, I hope that this concise, valuable book provides a springboard for empirical research and improvements to law and policy.

Brian Cutler, PhD, Professor, Faculty of Social Science and Humanities, Ontario Tech University Pozzulo, Pica, and Sheahan's new monograph bridges the gap in knowledge between the more commonly studied 'stranger identification' and the understudied but nevertheless important problem of mistaken identifications of familiar others.
