Biology and Crime profiles biological approaches to understanding why some people are criminals and others not. Written by internationally recognized behavioral geneticist David C. Rowe, the book offers instructors and students a brief, contemporary presentation of biological approaches to crime with a minimum of jargon. (A background in the biological sciences is not required.)

Boxes highlight special topics and examples drawn from newspaper stories to spark student interest.

Chapters cover:
* Behavioral genetics
* Evolutionary approaches to crime
* Biological tests for criminal disposition
* The human genome and crime
* The environment and crime
* Ethical and policy implications

This book will enrich students' appreciation of the nexus of biology and crime--without negating non-biological theories of crime.
