9780127050409: Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis

Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis is a unique work centered on the Deductive Profiling method developed by the author. Deductive Profiling is different from other forms of profiling because it centers the process on forensic evidence and does not involve the use of averaged, statistical profiles. It approaches each criminal incident as its own universe of behaviors and relationships.
Criminal Profiling includes a thorough rendering of the features of the deductive profiling method, an overview of the legal aspects involved in profiling, and an exploration into specific profiling issues that arise in different types of serial crime. It also includes the author's unique analysis of the Whitechapel Murders (Jack the Ripper) of 1888 and the JonBenet Ramsey homicide of 1996.
Criminal Profiling is a perfect companion for students and professionals in the law enforcement, mental health, criminological, and legal communities.

Key Features
* A unique approach--centered on the author's Deductive Profiling method
* Addresses related issues, such as ethics, clinical perspectives, and the essential role of the task force
* Provides a unique analysis of the Whitechapel Murders (Jack the Ripper) and the JonBenet Ramsey case
* Boasts the support of the world's leading forensic authors and profilers (Saferstein, Lee, Gebeth, Hare, and Teten)
* Written in a style accessible to a wide audience--from the detective performing hands-on casework to the academician in the classroom

Book Description:

The Second Edition of this bestselling text--revised, expanded, and featuring new case examples

From the Author:

This textbook was written to provide a tool that is effective for both educators and detectives alike. It provides a beginning language and methodology for a physical evidence oriented and multi-disciplinary approach to the process of criminal profiling. It is not a memoir, or a book of war stories otherwise disguised. And it is not a collection of esoteric, moralizing rhetoric. It is a guideline for sound investigative reasoning that works in the classroom when theory is being taught, and on actual cases when theory is being applied.
