MEDIA REVIEWS

"The main strength of the book is its comprehensive coverage of relevant literature, mainly from forensic/criminological psychology but also from other domains. ... Psychology and Crime would serve well as a general textbook in criminological psychology. It contains a wealth of information and will be of value to anyone seeking a rigorous academic discussion of the psychological issues associated with crime." - Denham Phipps, University of Manchester, UK, in The Psychologist, Vol 26 (7), July 2013

"The first edition of Psychology and Crime has become a classic in the field of criminology and forensic psychology. Written by one of the foremost authorities in the field, this second edition presents a timely update which will be welcomed by anyone with an interest in the academic study of criminology and forensic psychology." - Anthony Beech, Professor in Criminological Psychology, University of Birmingham, UK

"Clive Hollin's Psychology and Crime was the leading text in its field for many years and was very highly regarded. This second edition will be immediately welcomed by many students, academics and practitioners. The style is clear, highly readable and engaging, and the book succeeds in richly demonstrating how psychological theories can be applied to the understanding of crime. The central chapters looking very closely at serious crimes are particularly effective, and will be greatly valued by forensic psychology students and practitioners." - James McGuire, Professor of Forensic Clinical Psychology, University of Liverpool, UK
