Book Description

1 Feb 2009 1843923645 978-1843923640

This book provides an accessible introduction to the increasingly popular subject of criminal psychology. It explores the application of psychology to understanding the crime phenomenon, criminal behaviour,solving crimes, the court process and punishment rehabilitation. It will be an invaluable resource for anybody taking courses in this field, in particular students taking the criminal psychology/forensic psychology components of the main A-level psychology specifications. The book is fully in line with the new A-level specifications being taught from September 2009.

Each chapter includes case studies, keystudies, evaluations and a range of discussion questions. Apart from providing in depth and up-to-date knowledge on criminal psychology, the book is equally up-to-date on trends and issues in criminal justice today.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you are looking for a book/textbook regarding the rationale ... 6 Aug 2014
By M. Acuff - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a book/textbook regarding the rationale of criminal thinking, then this isn't what you want. I would classify it as advanced criminology and basic judicial process, but it does provide some insight on the criminal courts in the UK that would be interesting to see implemented in the US. This is still worth a read if you are studying criminal justice on your own as it does provide clear definitions for various concepts.

3.0 out of 5 stars criminal psychology 31 July 2012
By tom - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
received the book earlier than expected, the book was like new. could not find this book in local library. it contains all the relevant information i needed to complete a section of my course, in my experience reading this book it covers a large range of issues that anyone completing a course in criminal psychology would find useful. anyone completing a paper in criminal psychology based on the criminal nature found in the UK or Ireland would find this book useful.
