David P.Farrington, Professor of Psychological Criminology, CambridgeUniversity "A good marker of how much forensic psychology has developed inrecent years, this thought-provoking book is written by a number ofthe current leading experts (both practitioners and researchers)and provides up-to-date illustrations of some of the most excitingareas in the field. It will appeal to academics and students,people interested in becoming a forensic psychologist, currentforensic psychologists and other psychologists who wish to gain avaluable insight into this expanding area." Dr Peter Banister,Department of Psychology and Speech Pathology, ManchesterMetropolitan University "Practitioners in forensic psychology will find new insights inthis book whatever their level of knowledge and expertise in theirsubject ... This book, as it promises, is somewhat different fromother texts on forensic psychology and deserves a place on yourbookcase. It will make you think about how more psychology, whichis not forensic, could be adapted, applied, or provide some furtherinsight to the benefit of better forensic practice. While it wouldbe hard to meet all the expectations on the outside cover, it willnot disappoint."
