Product Description


Richard Wortley’s book is scholarly and lucid, wide-ranging in content, and undogmatic in tone. Most of all, it is timely. The need to bring together in an accessible form crime and criminality-relevant developments across the biological and psychological sciences had become urgent. The need is satisfied by this book.Professor Ken Pease, Loughborough University

Psychological Criminology should be essential reading for psychologists and all others who are interested in understanding the causes of offending.

It is a very impressive, comprehensive and empirically-based review of psychological, biological, situational and other major explanations of crime. David P. Farrington, Professor of Psychological Criminology, University of Cambridge

About the Author

Richard Wortley began his career as a prison psychologist and has subsequently taught in criminology schools for many years. He is currently a Professor at University College London where he is Director of the Jill Dando Institute for Security and Crime Science

Format: Paperback
I am currently doing my PhD and found this to be an excellent book for identifying theories and ideas surrounding crime and criminality. It is very well written and presented and clear to understand and provided detailed information.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone studying crime or criminality as it is not only an excellent starting point but a good book to refer to at all stages (undergraduate and postgraduate) and you do not have to be an expert in psychology to understand the chapters.
