- "A lucid, sure-footed tour of the unwieldy research literature on jurors and juries. In addition to offering fresh insights into past research, Devine proposes an ambitious agenda for future research. His integrative theory of jury decision making has the potential to generate much-needed new research and to reveal unnoticed connections between seemingly unrelated findings. Essential reading for both scholars and students."
—Mark Costanzo, Professor of Psychology, Claremont McKenna College
“Add this book to the list of milestones in the study of jury decision making. Not only has Dennis Devine provided an impressively comprehensive review of scholarly research on the question of how jurors and juries make decisions, he also offers a theory that ties the findings together, and does it all in an eminently readable way.”
—Edie Greene, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs
"The book can be a good classroom introduction to this body of research and to rigorous research generally."
"The book provides a rich and elegant explanation of what we observe in our own jury research and hear jurors describe in post-trial interviews. Those who want a better grasp of jury decision-making will find what they are looking for in this book."
—Susan Macpherson, Vice President of the Minneapolis office of NJP Litigation Consulting
“Devine’s book is most useful for those conducting research on juries. Any social scientist considering conducting studies on juries would benefit from the book.”
—Criminal Law Bulletin
