15 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Psychological contributions to the investigation and prosecution of crime raise many important questions; about the ethical implications for such interventions, the appropriate ways in which they can be incorporated into law enforcement activities, their scientific validity and their legal acceptability. Drawing on the use of psychology in a range of actual criminal cases, the present volume answers these crucial questions about the implications of 'profiling' for policy and practice." "The volume is essential reading for anyone who has a professional involvement in the use of psychological expertise in the investigative and legal processes. Students and researchers will find it to be a valuable reference source to a range of material not normally available. It will be of interest to everyone concerned with the rapidly growing utilisation of psychology by detectives and the courts."--Jacket

The book sets out to bridge the inherent gap between the practice of law and the profession of psychology at an international level." "The book will be essential reading not only for academics and professionals in psychology, the law, and related disciplines, wishing to understand the broadening base of psychology within the legal process but also for students trying to form an understanding of the emerging science and the associated career opportunities for this exciting field."--Jacket

Social scientists and those psychologists concerned to develop their understanding of accounts of crime will find the volume of particular utility, as will all those in law enforcement who wish to see an improvement in these crucial aspects of all criminal investigations."--BOOK JACKET

Safer sex in the city : the experience and management of street prostitution by David V Canter( Book )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thoroughout history prostitution has always been present and has usually been a source of fierce debate. Societies have either grudgingly tolerated it or tried (always unsuccessfully) to ban it. But with the emergence of much more overt acceptance of all forms of sexual activity, it has become more apparent that sex workers who ply their trade on the streets of our cities are a particularly vulnerable group. Awareness of this has led to an increase in research and policy discussions focused on the sex industry, particularly on issues concerning the safety of sex workers and the recognition that street prostitutes are particularly vulnerable to violent attacks and assaults. Realising that such violence is unacceptable in a civilised society and is often the breeding ground for assaults against those who are not in the sex industry, this volume provides a basis for understanding and considering the options available for managing this violence. In this book, current research and policies are reviewed by leading authorities from many different countries- academics and practitioners - from the fields of law, criminology, sociology and investigative psychology. The book will therefore be of value to researchers, practitioners and policy makers who want to understand the experience of street sex workers and the strategies available for managing this trade and for helping to reduce the violence against the men and women who conduct it
Criminal psychology by David V Canter( Book )

28 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in English and Turkish and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The psychological contributions to investigations are assessed with regard to interviewing and detecting deception as well as examining the nature and meaning of offender profiling. The role of psychologists as experts in court is reviewed, followed by a look at how psychologists work with prisoners. The psychology of the victim is also examined. The book concludes with a discussion of the future of crime and the growing contribution that psychology is making to understanding criminals and reducing their activities."--Jacket
