Description

The authors bring the "person" back into criminology by focusing on understanding individual differences in criminal conduct and recognizing the importance of personal, interpersonal, and community factors. What results is a truly interdisciplinary general personality and social psychology of criminal behavior that is open to a wide variety of factors that relate to individual differences — a perspective with both theoretical and practical significance in North America and Great Britain.

The book is now organized into four parts: (1) The Theoretical Context and Knowledge Base to the Psychology of Criminal Conduct, (2) The Major Risk/Need Factors of Criminal Conduct, (3) Applications, and (4) Summary and Conclusions. Chapters include helpful Resource Notes that explain important concepts. A selection of technical notes, separated from the general text, allows the advanced student to explore complex research without distracting readers from the main points.

Quotes and reviews

Comprehensive, rigorous, scholarly, evidence-driven, balanced, and incisive, this authoritative work sets the standard for correctional and criminal justice psychology course texts, and is applicable to a wide range of disciplines including psychology, psychiatry, criminology, sociology, law, forensic nursing, and related fields. Not only would the book be particularly useful as a textbook for graduate or senior undergraduate courses in criminal justice, forensic, or correctional psychology, it is a valuable and trustworthy resource for professionals in the field. In October 2010, the field of correctional and criminal justice psychology lost a giant with the sad passing of Dr. Donald Andrews, although a generous portion of his life work is captured, and his legacy continues to live on, within the pages of this book.~ MARK E. OLVER, British Journal of Psychology (2011), 102, 684–694
"With each new edition, Andrews and Bonta have striven to add to their knowledge base, incorporate new studies, and improve the readability of their work.
