The Law of Evidence in South Africa: Basic Principles provides a clear, practical and innovative introduction to the law of evidence in South Africa. The text provides a straightforward approach to the law of evidence, which follows a logical sequence, commencing with general principles; followed by trial procedures and rules; then followed by methods of evaluating evidence and, finally, considering the application of exclusionary rules in context. Contemporary innovations in the law of evidence, such as polygraphs, voice stress analysers and brain-scanning technology, are also discussed.
