A Review of The Art and Science of the Polygraph Technique
This book was written by a polygraphist trained in and primarily influenced by the specific polygraph concepts, doctrine, and techniques taught by Cleve Backster at the Backster School of Lie Detection. The author also places heavy emphasis on a study, “Validity and Reliability of Detection of Deception,” prepared for the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration by Drs. Raskin, Barland, and Podlesney of the Department of Psychology at the University of Utah in 1976.
