From Career Criminals to Criminal Careers
- Glenn D. Walters - Kutztown University, USA
Forensic Psychology | Forensic Science & Investigation (General)
• Begins with a clinical case study that is periodically referenced throughout the chapter to illustrate and illuminate the context being discussed
• examines the latent structure of crime-related constructs such as psychopathy, antisocial personality disorder, and criminal lifestyle
• explores evidence-based interventions that could prevent further crime
• offers a view of the phenomenological world of the criminal offender to help students further understand the nature of crime.
An excellent book, in-depth and comprehensive, yet accessible for undergraduate students. It allows for a better understanding of criminal careers, and criminal behavior in general, without restricting its focus to crime types and, therefore, offering students a broader perspective.
A challenging book for criminology students which explores and uses evidence-based interventions to assist students in their understanding of the nature of crime.
