forensic investigative science for the 21st century
Engaging a dangerous psychopath up close and personal will, at first demonstrate his gifts of deception. Only extending the conversation will reveal his true nature, as one starts to see red flags: impatience, rolling eyes, curt answers. Even the least perceptive can sense that something is not quite right, but how does law enforcement know for sure?Analyzing Criminal Minds: Forensic Investigative Science for the 21st Century explores new and emerging approaches to a perennially fascinating subject. Author Den Jacobs looks at ten tools and products that have revolutionized the discipline explaining how modern criminal mind analysis incorporates advances in criminal and forensic psychology, forensic neuropsychology, brain imaging, adolescent neurobiology, criminal profiling, and brain fingerprinting, as well as research into the paralimbic brain system and the impact of the "DANE" brain upon adolescent and young adult behaviorTwenty-three characteristics shared by jailed violent criminals are analyzed and considered in terms of neuropsychology and spectrum psychopathy. The book also probes psychopathy in various gradations in children, adolescents, and adults, and explains a controversial but increasingly plausible theory that endogenous brain chemistry lies beneath "natural" psychopathy and drives the engines of adaptation making our species the perfect model of surviving and thriving in a world becoming increasingly narcissistic and self-entitled. In part III, Order Becoming Disorder, the book describes how adaptive neuropsychopathy can become pathological and sexualized typified by a violent, sadistic, and irreversible personality disorder. --Book Jacket
