The Implicit Relation of Psychology and Law brings an innovative, feminist analysis to these affiliated fields. In addition to the explicit relationship between the two fields, they argue that there is an unrecognised implicit relation existing within the intersection of psychology and law which they find works to the disadvantage of women.
'The Implicit Relation of Psychology and Law by Raitt and Zeedyk is an immensely thought-provoking and illuminating book.' - Irina Anderson, University of East London, in Feminism & Psychology
