Description

Theories of crime typically reflect the discipline of the theorist. There has been little attempt to construct multidisciplinary frameworks that integrate psychological, biological, and sociological concepts in explaining, and controlling, criminal activity. Evolutionary behavioral science is ideally placed to provide a comprehensive and scientifically grounded framework for understanding criminal behavior. As human beings evolved, criminal behavior was a result of adaptations, or the by-products of adaptations.

This book introduces a comprehensive evolutionary behavioral science approach to crime and its management.

  • Authored jointly by specialists in evolutionary and forensic psychology
  • Integrates psychological, biological, and sociological concepts
  • Offers a unified theory to explain why criminal behavior exists
  • Introduces evolutionary concepts for non-biology experts to comprehend
