What is criminal behaviour? How is it identified? What is the role of the police and the courts? What is the evidence for hopes of controlling and changing criminal behavior? This book represents the systematic application of contemporary psychology to the study of crime, from biological factors, through child development to social learning. Feldman's work includes systematic contributions from sociology. The breadth of coverage and the firm base in psychology are unique in the current literature. It will appeal as a systematic text in criminal behavior and in the criminal justice system for both undergraduate and postgraduate courses, across the social sciences.
