Summary

''Excellent book, I have used this for my Criminal Behavior course for a number of years. Very authoritative.''
-Harry Cramer, Quincy University

The Fourth Edition of this best-selling text provides students with the most up-to-date information on the increasingly popular field of psychological profiling. Well-known authors Ronald M. Holmes and Stephen T. Holmes build upon their continued research and involvement in field investigation as a source of relevant and often high-profile case studies to illustrate theory and application of the methods discussed. The text is particularly readable and engaging, making frequent use of illustrative tables and figures and presenting occasional photos.

New to the Fourth Edition

  • Offers a new chapter on Lizzie Borden (Chapter 14), analyzing this historic murder case with fresh insight and a unique analysis while retaining the chapter on Jack the Ripper, a classic unresolved serial murderer
  • Covers more recent events such as the killings at Northern Illinois University and Virginia Tech
  • Provides a new section on Santeria and the occult to understand the dogma and icons of these teachings and investigates reasons behind crimes committed by some followers
  • Offers guidance to students for online graduate programs, seminars, and degrees in criminal profiling
  • Includes updated tables and crime statistics throughout the text
  • Presents new photos to offer authentic representations of violent crimes and offenders

Intended Audience
