The aim of the second edition of Serial Crime is to provide a theoretical and practical overview of criminal profiling and serial crime from a critical point of view. This edition will include revised and expanded chapters from the first edition, as well as a number of new chapters covering concepts not seen elsewhere in any of the literature on the subject matter. This includes a chapter detailing a study on metacognition in criminal profiling, research on the investigative relevance of criminal profiling, and a chapter on behavioral consistency and the homology assumption. These additions will help fill the gaps missing from the previous edition.
* Theoretical and practical overview of criminal profiling and serial crime
* Consolidates broadly distributed literature into single source
* Offering outstanding scholarship, each chapter is written by an expert in the topic area, with contributions from the U.S., Australia and the U.K.
