Writings of Professor Adam Benforado Appear in New Oxford University Press Book

February 10, 2012

Professor Adam Benforado co-authored three chapters that appear in “Ideology, Psychology, and Law,” which was recently published by Oxford University Press. 

The book examines “the sometimes unsettling interactions between psychology, ideology and law,” according to editor Jon Hanson, the Alfred Smart Professor of Law and director of the Project on Law and Mind Sciences at Harvard University.

Benforado, with Hanson, co-authored three chapters, “Attributions and Ideologies: Two Divergent Visions of Human Behavior Behind our Law, Policies, and Theories,” “Seeing Bias: Discrediting and Dismissing Accurate Attributions” and “Backlash: The Reaction to Mind Sciences in Legal Academia.”

Currently, Benforado is working on a book, “Unfair: How Our Hidden Minds Lead to Injustice,” to be published by Crown.
