Polygraph evidence was excluded from court after 1923, and in 1988 private employers were forbidden to polygraph employees, but polygraph use has expanded in the national security state and on daytime television. Hugh Gusterson plans to analyze the world the polygraph has created and the “practical knowledge” of those who administer or take polygraph tests.
