Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This third edition of "Offenders, Deviants or Patients?" is aimed specifically at understanding the social context of the serious criminal offender who is deemed to be mentally abnormal. Using up-to-date case examples, Herschel Prins examines the relationship between abnormality and criminal behaviour, the extent to which this relationship is used or misused in the criminal courts, and the various facilities that are currently available for the management/incarceration of offenders/patients. "Offenders, Deviants or Patients?" will be invaluable to all those who come into contact with serious offenders, as well as those studying crime or criminal behaviour.
