Overview

Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis / Edition 4

Focused on Behavioral Evidence Analysis (BEA), a method of criminal profiling developed and refined by the author over the past 15 years, the fourth edition of Criminal Profiling maintains the same core foundation that made previous editions best sellers in the professional and academic community worldwide. Written for practicing behavioral analysts and aspiring students alike, this work emphasizes an honest understanding of crime and criminals. Newly updated, mechanisms for the examination and classification of both victim and offender behavior have been improved. In addition to refined approaches towards victimology, crime scene analysis, motivation, and case linkage, a chapter on sexual deviance has been added as well. With prior editions in wide use as a primary text in criminal justice, law, criminology, and behavioral science programs around the world, Criminal Profiling, Fourth Edition remains essential for students and professionals alike. KEY FEATURES:
• Outlines the scientific principles and practice standards of BEA-oriented criminal profiling, with an emphasis on applying theory to real cases.
• Contributing authors from law enforcement, academic, mental health, and forensic science communities provide a balanced perspective.
• Complete glossary of key terms.
• Companion web site includes all appendices from previous volumes and figure collections at http://www.elsevierdirect.com/companions/9780123852434.
• Manual web site provides an instructor's manual for each chapter, powerpoint slideshows, and case reports from Brent Turvey's work.
