What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"The first edition of Psychology and Crime has become a classic in the field of criminology and forensic psychology. Written by one of the foremost authorities in the field, this second edition presents a timely update which will be welcomed by anyone with an interest in the academic study of criminology and forensic psychology." - Anthony Beech, Professor in Criminological Psychology, University of Birmingham, UK

"Clive Hollin’s Psychology and Crime was the leading text in its field for many years and was very highly regarded. This second edition will be immediately welcomed by many students, academics and practitioners. The style is clear, highly readable and engaging, and the book succeeds in richly demonstrating how psychological theories can be applied to the understanding of crime. The central chapters looking very closely at serious crimes are particularly effective, and will be greatly valued by forensic psychology students and practitioners." - James McGuire, Professor of Forensic Clinical Psychology, University of Liverpool, UK
