  • Codes of the Underworldby Diego Gambetta

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 23.95

    How do criminals communicate with each other? Unlike the rest of us, people planning crimes can't freely advertise their goods and services, nor can they rely on formal institutions to settle disputes and certify quality. They face uniquely intense dilemmas as they grapple with the basic problems of whom to trust, how to make themselves trusted, and... more...

  • The Criminal Imbecileby Henry H. Goddard

    The Floating Press 2014; US$ 3.99

    Although the title isn't exactly politically correct in this day and age, Henry Goddard's in-depth study of low-intelligence and developmentally disabled murderers certainly stands up to the test of time. In three detailed case studies, Goddard classifies the characteristics of different types of developmentally disabled criminals and posits... more...

  • Manhuntersby Colin Wilson

    Skyhorse Publishing 2014; US$ 22.95

    Author Colin Wilson opens this illuminating psychological discussion with the development of the 1977 Behavioral Science Unit, which was set up in order to answer the many questions surrounding serial killers: How does someone become a serial killer?

  • Bullying Among Prisonersby Jane L. Ireland

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 40.95

    Bullying in prisons can have severe consequences both for those directly involved and for the prison regime as a whole, yet the subject has been curiously neglected in the literature. In 1993, the Prison Service introduced their first anti-bullying strategy, and since then there has been a great deal of research on the subject. Bullying Among Prisoners... more...

  • The Criminal Triadby William M. Harmening

    Charles C Thomas 2010; US$ 47.95

    What is it that compels a person to choose a life of crime and deviancy over one of responsibility and social conformity? To understand exactly how and why that choice is ultimately made, we must turn to the discipline of psychology. The author presents and then deconstructs his own unique formulation of the internal deterrence system, and looks specifically... more...

  • Delinquent Girlsby Shari Miller; Leslie D. Leve; Patricia K. Kerig

    Springer 2011; US$ 129.00

    Traditionally, delinquent girls were considered an anomaly, a rare phenomenon attracting little scholarly notice. Today, more than one in four youth offenders is female, and researchers and practitioners alike are quickly turning their attention and resources to address this challenging situation. Delinquent Girls: Contexts, Relationships, and Adaptation... more...

  • Hemmschwellen im Strafrecht.by Jenny Lederer

    Duncker & Humblot 2011; US$ 84.53

    Hauptbeschreibung Bei dem Titel dieser Arbeit dürfte vielen Lesern die so genannte "Hemmschwellentheorie" in den Sinn kommen; die Tötungshemmschwelle stellt indes nur den gedanklichen Ausgangspunkt für die Untersuchung dar, wenn die Autorin auch in einem übergreifenden Exkurs auf sie und das vom BGH entwickelte Hemmschwellenargument eingeht: Die... more...
