“Impressive... I love the style of this book and believe that students and researchers will find the theory and context invaluable in underpinning their knowledge of forensic and criminal psychology. 

Dr Joy Coogan, University of East London

 

“An excellent introduction to forensic psychology.  The chapters are very well-organised and include an examination of key concepts and important controversies while the Forensic Psychology in Action sections provide students with an insight into the ways in which theory, research and practice work together in applied forensic settings.”

Dr Lorraine Hope, University of Portsmouth
