In recent decades, the remit of forensic psychology has considerably widened. From an original, narrow focus on presenting evidence to the courts, its scope now spreads across the whole span of civil and criminal justice. Forensic psychologists are now intimately involved with suspects, offenders, victims, witnesses, defendants, litigants, and justice professionals.
As serious academic and practical thinking in and around forensic psychology continues to develop, this new four-volume collection from Routledge's acclaimed Critical Concepts in Psychology series meets the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of a rapidly growing and ever more complex corpus of literature. Edited by a leading scholar and practitioner, the collection gathers the foundational major works together with the very best contemporary scholarship.
With a full index, and thoughtful introductions, newly written by the editor, Forensic Psychology will be valued by scholars, students, and professionals in the field as a vital and enduring resource. Contains 4 Hardbacks
