Manufacturer Description

Taken from published reviews: " Dr Blackburn has written aremarkably good book; indeed, the best book on the topic fromeither side of the Atlantic I have read. the breadth of the authors knowledge is nothing short of encyclopaedic. Not only psychologydevelopmental and social, as well as clinical but also psychiatry,biology, philosophy, and law are addressed in this volume. Finally,the book is written with clarity, economy, and a lucid style. It isas inviting and user-friendly as any work of such complexity canbe. I hope that it will find its way into psychiatry residencytraining programmes as well. It could do wonders for replacingturf-battles with common ground." Criminal Behaviour & MentalHealth " The scholarly breadth and accuracy of this work areremarkable. There seems to be no important contribution to ourpsychological understanding of crime which Blackburn has omitted todiscuss, including those approaches from sociological and socialpsychology which are frequently neglected in straightforwardpsychological treatments. Moreover, all approaches areintelligently and sympathetically discussed." Expert Evidence " Thevolume is infused with the author s enthusiasm for a socialcognitive perspective on offending behaviour, but he also robustlydefends the utility of the notion of personality traits. Overall,this book brings together a vast array of research and theoryexamined from the perspective of the clinician involved with theindividual. It will almost certainly become the key background textfor post-graduate courses teaching forensic psychology and would bea valuable addition to the bookshelf of any clinician with forensicconcerns." Clinical Psychology Forum " This is undoubtedly animportant book. The end result is a book of excellent quality,which I recommend most warmly to clinical psychologists, andindeed, to anybody who is interested in criminological psychology." Behaviour Research and Therapy " This author is to becongratulated for having produced this impressive volume. Itprovides a comprehensive review which is critical yetwell-balanced. It assumes no prior familiarity with the field, andspecialists from many different disciplines will learn a great dealfrom it." Criminal Law Review
