No country on earth has a higher proportion of its citizens in prison than the United States, but we Americans seem to have only the vaguest stereotypical ideas about the real causes of crime. University of Pennsylvania criminology, psychiatry, and psychology professor Adrian Raine has devoted thirty-five years of research to discover the biological roots of criminal behavior—and, believe it or not, its potential cure. His findings about cognitive impairments in the ability to make decisions and feel empathy add new dimensions to discussions about the evildoers among us. The Anatomy of Violence qualifies as a significant contribution to current debates about violence and crime in our society.
