Summary
Synopsis: The fourth edition of Profiling Violent Crimes combines social and behavioral theory with practical criminology research to acquaint professionals and students with the general principles of profiling. New to this edition are chapters on the use of computers in profiling geoforensic information, paedophilia and arson. The authors provide a practical approach to assessing violent crimes and outlines crime scene elements which offer insight not only to the type of crime involved but also to the person who may have been involved in the commission of such a crime. They argue that profiling should be used as 'yet another forensic tool to compliment a thorough investigation
