Criminal Profiling : How Psychological Profiling Helps Solve True Crimes, Hardback Book

Criminal Profiling : How Psychological Profiling Helps Solve True Crimes Hardback



Is there such a thing as a criminal type? Are criminals born genetically predisposed to commit crimes, or are they fashioned by their circumstances?

Physicians, psychologists and criminologists have been asking these questions for many centuries, without finding a definitive answer.

Criminal Profiling is packed with intriguing case histories that demonstrate the variety, sophistication and effectiveness of criminal profiling.

The book includes chapters on the search for the criminal personality, early criminal profiling and the latest theories of criminality, and features the stories of Ted Bundy, Peter Sutcliffe and Andrei Chikatilo, among many others.

Illustrated with 200 colour and black-and-white photographs, Criminal Profiling is a wide-ranging, authoritative history of this fascinating subject, from the first efforts at physical profiling to today's computer-generated geographic mapping techniques.
