Overview

New discoveries from neuroscience and behavioral genetics are besieging criminal law. Novel scientific perspectives on criminal behavior could transform the criminal justice system and yet are being introduced in an ad hoc and often ill-conceived manner. Bringing together experts across multiple disciplines, including geneticists, neuroscientists, philosophers, policymakers, and legal scholars, The Impact of Behavioral Sciences on Criminal Law is a comprehensive collection of essays that address the emerging science from behavioral genetics and neuroscience and its developing impact on the criminal justice system. The essays survey how the science is and will likely be used in criminal law and the policy and the ethical issues that arise from its use for criminal law and for society.

This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the ongoing genomics and neuroscience revolution and its implications for criminal law.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Recent developments in behavioral genetics have tremendous potential for understanding crime; yet they also create great dangers of abuse in criminal trials as well as policies. These profound and important issues are discussed in depth from various disciplinary perspectives by the prominent and learned contributors to this well-organized and accessible volume. It should be read by anyone interested in where our legal system is headed."
—Walter Sinnott-Armstrong,
Dartmouth College, Co-director, MacArthur Law and Neuroscience Project
