Description
This book on criminal psychology deals with different psychological perspectives of criminal behaviour. This book is refreshing and a contemporary contribution to the field of criminal psychology and focuses on the most interesting domains and developments in the field. The book discusses the appropriate psychological foundations of criminology and the necessary multi-disciplinary nature of the criminal behaviour. The last decade has witnessed a dramatic change in our understanding of the way in which the criminal-mind operates and the reasons behind a myriad of deviant human behaviour. The traditional idea, that good behaviour dominates the majority, is facing a daunting challenge today by the manifestation of criminality in various walks of life. Critical understanding is important to comprehend how this beautiful world is degrading into an ugly face of fear, anger and hatred and its devastating manifestations. Sometimes the atrocities and crime committed by individuals, groups and communities raise questions on our faith over love, empathy and human sensitivity. This book on criminal psychology brings together seminal works from psychologists and explores the manner in which the discipline of psychology and psychological researches can illuminate our understanding of criminal behaviour. This book has been written to provide support to criminal psychology students and critically evaluates the extensive literature and research in this area. This text will be of great value to students interested in the understanding of different psychological meanings, interpretations and mental architecture that govern criminality of behaviour.
