Offender Profiling and the Analysis of Criminal Action

This ground-breaking text is the first to provide a detailed
overview of Investigative Psychology, from the earliest work
through to recent studies, including descriptions of previously
unpublished internal reports. Crucially it provides a framework for
students to explore this exciting terrain, combining Narrative
Theory and an Action Systems framework. It includes empirically
tested models for Offender Profiling and guidance for
investigations, as well as an agenda for research in Investigative
Psychology.

Investigative Psychology features:



  • The full range of crimes from fraud to terrorism, including
    burglary, serial killing, arson, rape, and organised crime.

  • Important methodologies including multi-dimensional scaling and
    the Radex approach as well as Social Network Analysis.

  • Geographical Offender Profiling, supported by detailed analysis
    of the underlying psychological processes that make this such a
    valuable investigative decision support tool.

  • The full range of investigative activities, including effective
    information collection, detecting deception and the development of
    decision support systems.


In effect, this text introduces an exciting new paradigm for a
wide range of psychological contributions to all forms of
investigation within and outside of law enforcement. Each chapter
has actual cases and quotations from offenders and ends with
questions for discussion and research, making this a valuable text
for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Applied and Forensic
Psychology, Criminology, Socio-Legal Studies and related
disciplines.
