“This book is essential reading for anyone who is involved in providing or utilising expert witness evidence in cases pertaining to individuals with psychopathic traits.” (The Psychologist, 1 January 2013)The eminent editors of this volume are to be congratulated for having put together such an excellent collection of relevant and highly readable chapters on the interface between psychopathy and the law. The chapter topics were well-chosen, and the contributors are among the leaders in the field. The editors themselves have addressed several topics not previously covered, including civil litigation in family law, and organized crime and war crimes. This is a very important compendium, not only of the latest thinking on psychopathy, but of useful guidelines for using this information in accordance with professional, ethical, and legal standards for clinical and forensic practice. I highly recommend this book to everyone concerned with the implications of psychopathy for the criminal justice system.
