  • Life within Hidden Worldsby Jessica Williams Saunders

    Karnac Books 2001; US$ 30.95

  • The Pale Criminalby Stephen J. Costello

    Karnac Books 2002; US$ 33.95

    It was Freud, borrowing Nietszche's phrase from Thus Spake Zarathustra, who described as 'pale criminals' those who committed criminal acts out of deep-lying (unconscious) guilt. The focus of this challenging and penetrating study is on this type of criminality. It is Stephen J. Costello's aim to bring a 'unifying vision and theoretical integration'... more...

  • 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 Neurobiology of Criminal Behaviorby Dr Jonathan D Bolen; Professor Anthony Walsh

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 129.95

    The main feature of this work is that it explores criminal behaviour from all aspects of Tinbergen's Four Questions.

It suggests that it is necessary to understand some genetics and neuroscience in order to appreciate... more...
