Violent Offenders: Theory, Research, Public Policy and Practice, Second Edition is a collection of original scholarship from an international collection of applied and academic criminologists. This text contains cutting-edge material on the broad category of criminal predators, including homicide offenders, sex offenders, financial predators, and conventional street criminals. Unlike other texts on the subject that narrowly focus on one type of criminal (e.g., serial killers), this updated Second Edition illustrates the systemic importance of predation in antisocial behavior. This book is divided into two parts; part one contains theory and research on violent offenders, and part two covers the policy and practice of responding to violent offenders.
