9780123852434: Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis
Rezension:

Praise for the third edition: "In the third edition of this very popular textbook, Brent Turvey clearly demonstrates that criminal profiling has established itself as a scientific endeavor rather than an exercise in investigative intuition. This textbook pulls together an impressive amount of substantive knowledge from a variety of disciplines in order to provide the reader with a foundation upon which to develop a mastery of the criminal profiling process. As Turvey demonstrates throughout the text, however, there are various methodological approaches to the practice of criminal profiling. Paramount among these, he argues, is the method known as Behavioral Evidence Analysis, which is described and illustrated in great detail throughout this remarkable book." --Daniel B. Kennedy, PhD, Forensic Criminologist, University of Detroit Mercy "The third edition of Criminal Profiling is sterling!" --Stan Crowder, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice, Kennesaw State University, GA Praise for the previous editions: "This text documents the principles of proper criminal profiling and undertakes to establish definite criteria for professionalization...should be reviewed by anyone intent on becoming a professional criminal profiler." -AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PSYCHIATRY "...a thorough grounding in what is a relatively new field. This is more than a basic text and...should be required reading for all criminal investigators." -CRIME AND JUSTICE INTERNATIONAL "...an important contribution to the systematic study of the behavioural evidence linked to the perpetration of serious crimes...Brent Turvey's opus is a major and much needed step toward professionalism [of criminal profiling.]" -THE EXPERT "Decrying 'faith-based thinking' amongst some who call themselves criminal profilers, this work seeks to professionalize criminal profiling by insisting that it rest on a proper background in the behavioral sciences and criminal forensics; hence the secondary label found in the subtitle, "behavioral evidence analysis." The author (together with collaborators) describes the skills, techniques, and methods of this scientifically-oriented criminal profiling in 25 chapters organized into sections on introductory issues, forensic victimology, crime scene analysis, offender characteristics, and professional issues (i.e., ethics and trial testimony)."--4th Edition review in Reference and Research Book News

Vom Verlag:

Now in its fourth edition, Criminal Profiling - winner of a 2012 Texty Award from the Text and Academic Authors Association - is an established resource centered on the deductive profiling method developed by the author. With 35% new content, this edition contains cases in each chapter, along with the latest advances in evidence-based profiling. Additional information has been added covering topics such as mass homicide, as well as the timely inclusion of a chapter on terrorist profiling and interviewing. Deductive profiling is different from other forms of profiling in that it does not involve averaged, statistical profiles. Instead it focuses on criminal profiling as an investigative process, solving real crime through an honest understanding of the nature and behavior of criminals. It approaches each criminal incident as its own universe of behaviors and relationships. Throughout the text, the author illustrates the most crucial tenet that any good criminal profiler should adhere to: the enthusiastic desire to investigate and examine the facts. Criminal Profiling, Fourth Edition, is an ideal companion for students and professionals alike, including investigators, forensic scientists, criminologists, mental health professionals, and attorneys. Readers will use it as a comprehensive reference text, a handbook for evaluating physical evidence, a tool to bring new perspectives to cold cases, and as an aid in preparing for criminal trials. * Best-selling author Brent Turvey defines the deductive profiling method, which focuses on examining the nature and behavior of criminals in order to solve crimes * Contributing authors represent law enforcement, academic, mental health, and forensic science communities for a balanced perspective * Completely revised with 35% new material including updates on the latest advances in evidence-based profiling New to this edition * Entirely new cases in every chapter * New chapters in logic and reasoning * New chapter reviewing non-evidence based profiling methods * New chapter on mass homicide * New chapter on terrorist profiling and interviewing
