People have been fascinated by the topic of deception for millennia. Issues of truth and deception have figured prominently in philosophy, literature, and law. More recently, psychologists have begun to treat deception as a topic for investigation. This bibliography will provide the reader with a road map to the psychological research literature on deception. The goal is to understand what happens when one person tries to deceive another. After considering several overviews, theories, and applications, this article presents work on the liar, before turning to work on the would-be lie detector. As the accumulated evidence shows, it is hard to detect lies.
