Description

Combining political analysis, scientific reasoning, and an indepth study of specific state supreme court cases, ""Black Robes, White Coats"" is an interdisciplinary examination of the tradition of 'gatekeeping,' the practice of deciding the admissibility of novel scientific evidence. Rebecca Harris systematically examines judicial policymaking in three areas - forensic DNA, polygraphs, and psychological syndrome evidence.
