Reviews

Richard Wortley's book is scholarly and lucid, wide-ranging in content, and undogmatic in tone. Most of all, it is timely. The need to bring together in an accessible form crime and criminality-relevant developments across the biological and psychological sciences had become urgent. The need is satisfied by this book. -- Professor Ken Pease, Loughborough University Psychological Criminology should be essential reading for psychologists and all others who are interested in understanding the causes of offending. It is a very impressive, comprehensive and empirically-based review of psychological, biological, situational and other major explanations of crime. -- David P. Farrington, Professor of Psychological Criminology, University of Cambridge
