One of the fastest-growing areas of applied psychology, forensic psychology is concerned not only with how and why crime is committed but also with the investigation, detection, and prosecution of offenders and their punishment and rehabilitation. Assembled by an editorial dream team, this comprehensive and up-to-date undergraduate text covers the entire spectrum of forensic psychology. Within a four-part format, it examines the anatomy of a crime, investigating crime, the trial process, and sentencing and rehabilitation. Additional resources (Web links, PowerPoint slides) are available online for lecturers and students.
