Criminologists have been waiting a very long time for a psychology of crime that speaks their language. Finally it has arrived. Craig Webber brings together a wealth of psychological research that students of criminology ignore at their peril. He also documents the significant in-roads criminologists are now making with regard to matters of the mind too often treated as 'off-limits' by many social scientists, psychologists included.Dr David GaddKeele University
Very good for Access to Law and Criminology.
Clearly written and sufficient detail - Learners like the formatting of this book and agree that it is ideal for newcomers to this topic. Have recommended to our library.
A generalised overview, good starting point.
An excellent book for students with an interest in both criminology and psychology! It is well written in a language that is easy to get to grips with! A long awaited book!
This is a good book that I am wanting to use as the recommended reading for the new Introduction to Pychology module on our Criminal Justice course. The number of students will vary but I am hoping for a regular cohort.
An excellent read for students, linking Psychology and Crime, together in a comprehensive and unique way.
Psychology and Crime book shelps to improve understanding criminologica perspective on the human behaviour.l found it very helpful in terms of undertanding the different aspects of criminology and social inequality from interpresonal violence up to state crime.
Easy to digest, good analysis of a range of issues discussed within Criminology.
This text book does not in my opinion have sufficient breadth of coverage to be used as the sole or main textbook for a final year undergraduate module in forensic psychology. However, it does cover some topics that are rarely included in forensic psychology texts at this level, such as investigating sexual violence, group and gang crime, mass murder (including war crimes), and terrorism. As a result, Webber's text is an excellent supplemental text for use in undergraduate psychology modules.
Excellent work for comparative analysis of the topic.
An excellent introductory text that guides students through this fascinating topic. Webber highlights further reading and study questions to allow the reader a greater level of engagement with the topic
This is a very good introductory text book, bringing together varies aspects of criminology and forensic psychology in an accessible and comprehensive manner. However, I would only recommend it at UG level, as it is too superficial for PG students.
Another new perspective, very interesting.
An engaging and well written inytroduction to a fast growing field. Useful for students at all levels of their studies.
This is one of the best psychology and crime books I have read. It is written in a very accessible style and covers a range of areas. It is highly recommended to my students.
This is a good overview text that covers all the main areas of interest to students of forensic psychology. It is accessible and easy to read and is very user friendly in its layout. I will recommend it to students
Good text to get students interested and engaged with areas in the first instance.
This is a textbook which combines psychology and criminology. It explains crimes from a psychological perspective and assists students to make sense of crimes, such as murder. It has been recommended to the students who are studying the Investigation of Homicide Module at the MSc Criminal investigation.
Useful as a supplemental, but I wish the author had gone into core psychlogical theories and their link to criminology in more depth before exploring issues.
