Reviews and Recommendations

We've comprehensively compiled reviews of Inside the Criminal Mind from the world's leading experts.

David Canter What I like about it is the honesty with which, as psychologists, they described their interactions with criminals. They discuss, initially, various attempts to get people to stop being criminals… It emphasises agency. A lot of the sociological explanations ignore the fact that the people from very similar backgrounds can end up very differently. (Source)
