A comprehensive psychological approach to criminal behavior.
Accurate, researched-based, contemporary, and comprehensive: Criminal Behavior: A Psychological Approach, Tenth Edition, builds on the excellence established in previous editions. The text offers a detailed look at crime, what may lead to it, and how criminal behavior may be prevented, all from a psychological perspective. Focusing on serious crimes, particularly those involving violence, Criminal Behavior offers a comprehensive look at this complex field with effective and engaging material that has been classroom-tested for over thirty years.
This was a required textbook for a Criminal Justice course on criminal minds and behavior. The text is clearly written with great references for further study.
I ordered this book for a forensic psychology class and it was well used. Good book with a lot of good information.
