Curt R. Bartol's Criminal Behavior: A Psychological Approach, 9th Edition, ISBN 9780135050507 provides an overview of the most current research, theory, and observations of criminal behavior through the lens of a psychological perspective. This text presents ideology behind the premise that true understanding of criminal behavior must include the exploration of the various events and relationships that have affected the course of a person's life including their relationship with family, peers, schools, neighborhoods, communities, culture, as well as society as a whole. Also presented in this resource is the view that criminal offenders exist on a continuum which ranges from serious, repetitive offenders who begin their course of offenses early in life to occasional offenders who only offend at different points of their life, particularly during the adolescent years. A thorough examination of the behavioral, emotional, and cognitive characteristics of crime is presented to the reader from the standpoint of both the offender and the victim. Bartol craftily arranges the comprehensive content of Criminal Behavior: A Psychological Approach, 9th Edition across 13 interesting chapters. Chapter 1 serves as a thorough 'Introduction to Criminal Behavior.' Chapter 2 then delves into the 'Origins of Criminal Behavior: Biological Factors' while chapter 3 investigates 'The Psychopath: A Focus on Biological Factors.' 'Origins of Criminal Behavior: Learning Factors' is explored in chapter 4 while 'Juvenile Delinquency' is the topic of chapter 5. Chapter 6 takes a close look at 'The Mentally Disordered Offender' while chapter 7 explores 'Human Aggression and Violence' and chapter 8 looks at 'Criminal Homicide and Assault.' Chapter 9 goes a step further with 'Criminal Homicide: A Closer Look' followed by chapter 10 investigating 'Sexual Offenses' and chapter 11 focusing on 'Economic and Public Order Crime.' Lastly, this book is concluded with chapter 12 which focuses on 'Drugs and Crime' and chapter 13 with 'Correctional Pscyhology.'
