The Reid Technique of interviewing and interrogation

WithJoseph P. Buckley

A process of interviewing and interrogation, which has come to be known as the Reid Technique, was initially developed in the 1940s and 50s and described in the first edition of the book, Criminal Interrogation and Confessions, by Fred E. Inbau and John E. Reid, published in 1962. During the next 43 years the Reid Technique continued to evolve and several new editions of the book were published, with the fourth edition published in 2001 (co-authored by Inbau, Reid, Joseph Buckley and Brian Jayne).
