Leading psychologists in the field address issues relevant to the reliability of children's testimony. Increasing concern over the investigation and adjudication of child sexual abuse cases has brought about questions: How good is the memory of children for eyewitnessed or experienced events? How does the child's memory function change with age? How is a child's recall of events best facilitated and least contaminated?

This comprehensive volume juxtaposes differing views and frames the debate in the broader context of child development and cognitive science.
