With contributions from foremost experts, this authoritative
handbook provides a state-of-the-science review of current
knowledge on the psychopathic personality. Coverage includes major
theoretical models; conceptual and definitional questions;
assessment approaches; and etiological pathways, ranging from
family and environmental factors to genes, neurotransmitters, and
brain systems. Manifestations of psychopathy in specific
populations are addressed, as are links to salient problem
behaviors such as aggression, substance abuse, sexual offending,
and recidivism. Clinical and legal issues are also examined in
depth. Seamlessly edited, each major thematic section concludes
with a summary chapter that integrates the findings presented and
highlights key questions for future research.
