504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 245-280) and 
520    This book sheds new light on how jurors interpret justice 
       in the wake of accidents and reveals much about the 
       psychology of jury decision making in general. Using case 
       material, the author analyzed both the words lawyers use 
       to help jurors assign blame and the words jurors 
       themselves use as they make decisions. The author 
       discusses the relevant social and cognitive literature and
       shows how jurors' everyday habits of thought and feeling 
       inform their deliberations. The author's thesis is that 
       jurors use legal facts and rules in combination with 
       common sense to process what he calls total justice. 
       Contrary to stereotypes about jurors, both emotion and 
       reason appear to be central to reaching a decision that 
       feels right to the jury. This book is for forensic 
       psychologists, practicing students, lawyers, and anyone 
       interested in learning about the psychology of legal 
       persuasion. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all
