    About this book

    The technique commonly referred to as ‘criminal profiling’ is one in which crime behaviours are evaluated to predict the likely attributes of an offender. In practice, the technique has enjoyed steady growth and interest over the past three decades. The present volume draws together research from scholars and practitioners from across the globe that examines from a range of multidisciplinary perspectives the use, application and value of this form of profiling.



    The material canvassed throughout this text not only examines research and theoretical principles for the assessment of crimes, but extends to exploring the range of issues facing the theoretical development of criminal profiling and its practical, legal and professional practice. Topics include the examination of homicidal syndromes, the association of crime scene behavior patterns with offender characteristics, criminal propensity and opportunity, the identification of crimes committed by the same offender, the legal admissibility of profiling, its accuracy, and the problems confronting the contemporary practice of criminal profiling. This volume is likely to become an essential reference for forensic practitioners and students alike operating in the fields of criminology, law and policing and anyone with a genuine interest in the investigation and resolution of violent crime.

    From the reviews:



    “Criminal Profiling: International Theory, Research and Practice, is a compilation of scholarly works by some 30 contributors from around the globe. … The book contains a mix of both interesting and insightful chapters … . this book may be of interest to those looking for international grounding or to academics looking for avenues for future research. Richard Kocsis should be commended on his continued efforts to lend scientific rigour to a field that is often a difficult research subject.” (Melissa Martineau, Canadian Society of Forensic Science, May, 2008)


    “Richard Kocsis presents us with a balanced, thoughtful, and insightful collection of papers dealing with the state of the art in criminal profiling at this point in time, along with suggestions about where future research needs to go. … In summary, this is a very intriguing and thoughtful book that has some excellent and very thought-provoking chapters. … this book is an excellent contribution to what is often a very misrepresented field.” (David L. Shapiro, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 53 (15), 2008)


    “This book describes criminal profiling from the perspective of authors from many different countries. … The book is intended as a reference for forensic scientists, consultant forensic psychologists, and students. … deals with a broad spectrum of issues in the field of criminal profiling from an international perspective. It is full of research that links theory to practice. … is really for serious students of criminology. … enhanced by the contributions of authors from many different countries, providing cross-cultural comparisons.” (Gary B Kaniuk, Doody’s Review Service, November, 2007)

    Most incidents of violent crime occur between people who know each other, but in other cases (fortunately much less frequent) there are no obvious ties between the victim and the criminal, and these cases cause a great deal of social fear and uncertainty. They also result in large-scale, costly investigations and, increasingly, police are collaborating with other professionals in a process of offender profiling which might help their investigation. This book is a substantial, unique and critical account of the scope and practice of offender profiling, and its limitations. Professionals worldwide, from psychiatry, psychology, criminology and policing, have contributed accounts of their experience and knowledge across a range of approaches to offender profiling. Some use a clinical approach, based on the application of established theories of personality and psychopathy. Others argue for the effectiveness of the objective analysis of offence records to predict future offending. Some of the police contributions provide a frank description of their methods, others address the difficult issues relating to the use of offender profiling. This is a controversial subject, full of potent myth, and the object of this book is to provide a cool overview of the related scientific knowledge, now spread over many journals and reports, as well as accounts of the process and difficulties of offender profiling. It will be useful and interesting to most scientists and professionals in the field of criminal justice. This book is in the Wiley Series in the Psychology of Crime, Policing and Law.
