Taking an uncompromising look at how we define psychopathology this book makes the argument that criminal behaviour can - and perhaps should be - considered a disorder. Presenting sociological, genetic, neurochemical, brain-imaging, and psychophysiological evidence, it discusses the basis for criminal behaviour and suggests, contrary to popular belief, that such behaviour may be more biologically determined than previously thought.
