The book is well structured to provide the reader with illustrative examples of the application of psychological theory to the field of psychology and law and clear intersects the two disciplines.
A bit too narrow for my course.
An excellent resource
I personally felt that this book attempted to cover too much ground, and as a result was lacking in depth and clarity on a lot of the topics covered. As a result, I felt that it was limited as a text for a post-graduate level course. I would suggest that it may be more appropriate for readers wishing to obtain a general overview of the area...
The sub-title of this book really sums up its underlying aim, which is to examine the possibility of a rapprochement of the two constructs of a career criminal and a criminal career.
Each chapter builds on those preceding and leads us from the layman's condemnation of the criminal as 'crazy' or 'evil' towards an understanding of criminal behaviour, within the important context of understanding being entirely separate from acceptance or forgiveness.
Excellent text providing a logical structure and a wide range of topics.
An informative and comprehensive textbook. I particularly like the use of chapter opening cases
It contains a lot of useful and relevant information, and I highly recommend it to both my 2nd and 3rd year undergraduates.
I have used this book myself whilst completing the 3rd year of a BA (Hons) in Criminal Justice Studies and found it very beneficial. It would be a good 'added extra' for students reading lists.
This is a very easy to read book and the students all found it useful.
An overall excellent book, and a perfect complement for this course. In-depth and comprehensive, yet accessible for undergraduate students, it allows for a better understanding of criminal careers, and criminal behavior in general.
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.
