"Is there a genetic predisposition to crime? Should mental illness be taken into account? Do family and social environments have a role? Do people become abusers because they have been abused? How can people who do terrible things consider themselves good people? What should someone involved in a relationship with a criminal know?" "Stanton Samenow, co-author of the widely respected three-volume study of The Criminal Personality, has collected the questions posed by audiences during his speaking engagements of the past twenty-eight years about causes, characteristics, and treatments of antisocial behavior. Now he draws on his research and clinical experience with hundreds of men, women, and children to offer no-frills answers that embody his informed perspectives on some of the toughest policy issues facing individuals, institutions, and governments today."--Jacket
The myth of the out of character crime by Stanton E Samenow( Book )

What makes otherwise stable and respected men and women commit crimes? Lee Malvo, one of the D.C. snipers, was known to his friends and family as a smart, promising man. "Steven," was a talented, young scientist with no criminal record. No one suspected he was capable of injuring another - until he was arrested for abducting a man, handcuffing him, and threatening to blow off his head with a pistol. Why don't those who know these individuals best see the signs of potential danger? Are there clues one can look for that indicate when a person is about to snap? What in the psychological makeup of offenders results in their committing crimes? In The Myth of the Out of Character Crime, a seasoned forensic psychologist delves into the psyches of these otherwise "normal" people, whom he has treated and researched for many years. With firsthand experience interviewing and treating such offenders, Samenow is able to offer numerous case examples of everyday people committing extraordinary crimes. He reveals the significant clues from the seemingly mundane aspects of their daily lives that help to unmask these criminals. The way a person handles money, consumption of alcohol, sexual history, marital conflicts, job history and performance, interests and hobbies, reading preferences, ambitions and goals, and reactions to frustrations can all be indicators leading up to the criminal act. By probing these and other aspects of the offenders' lives, the author finds a context for the crimes they commit. He concludes that the "out-of-character" crime does not exist, that the crime is merely the outer manifestation of what lies beneath the surface. By taking readers through the steps necessary to understand these criminals, using real-life examples in every chapter to illustrate his points, Samenow shows how we can all read the signs before it is too late. Readers will come away with a better understanding of how these criminals operate. -- from dust jacket

'Yochelson and Samenow attribute crime to a series of early irresponsible choices that predate drug use among drug-using criminals. Personality and personal choice variables are conceptualized as critical in initialing and maintaining use. In what is called an indiscriminate search for excitement, drug-using criminals are characterized as expanding their criminal repertoire while excusing their actions by rationalizations sometimes invented by sociologists, psychologists, and psychiatrists. Although these ideas are of considerable interest, the real value of the text lies in its intriguing pre
