Adrian Raine Department of Psychology. University of Southern California. USA Jose Sanmartin Queen Sojia Center for the Study of Violence. Valencia. Spain The problems that psychopathic and violent offenders create for society are not restricted to North America. Instead, these offenders create havoc throughout the world, including Europe. In recognition of this fact, Queen Sophia of Spain has promoted a Center for the Study of Violence which recognizes both biological and social contributions to the cause of violence. In November 1999, the Queen Sofia Center for the Study of Violence held its IV International Meeting on the Biology and Sociology of Violence. This fourth Meeting, which was under the Honorary Presidency of H. M. The Queen of Spain, examined the biological, psychological and social aspects of the psychopath, the violent offender, and the serial killer. This book presents some of the key contributions made at that conference and which were first published in Spanish in 2000 by Ariel Press. A key thrust of this book, and a stance shared by all of its contributors, is the notion that violence and psychopathy simply cannot be understood solely, or even fundamentally, in terms of social and environmental forces and influences. Nor do biological factors offer an exclusive explanation.

Alles beginnt mit einem mysteriösen Päckchen, das an Neurologen auf der ganzen Welt verschickt wird. Es enthält ein unheimliches Buch, eine Nachricht, aber keinen Absender! Alle sind sich einig: Hier ist ein Psychopath am Werk! Jon Ronson versucht, das Rätsel zu lösen, und begibt sich auf eine filmreife Mission, die so wahr wie gruselig ist. Seine Recherche führt ihn zu »Tony«, einem verurteilten Mörder und diagnostizierten Psychopathen, der beteuert, einer Fehldiagnose zum Opfer gefallen zu sein. Jon wird auf seiner Reise schnell klar, wo sich die meisten Psychopathen aufhalten: Sie bewegen sich inmitten der Gesellschaft, sie sitzen an den Schalthebeln der Macht, sind Firmenbosse, Politiker und spielen in der Finanzwelt eine führende Rolle - kurzum: Sie lenken sogar unsere Gesellschaft.

Sind Sie ein Psychopath? Natürlich nicht. Vielleicht sind Sie eine Führungskraft oder ein sehr spiritueller Mensch. Sie haben Charme, Sie sind unerschrocken und risikofreudig, können harte Entscheidungen treffen. Sie sind sehr aufmerksam und können sich gut auf ein Ziel konzentrieren. Sie werden feststellen, dass das Eigenschaften sind, die Sie mit Psychopathen teilen. Selbstredend sind diese Eigenschaften nützlich, wenn man ein Serienmörder werden will. Aber auch im Gerichtssaal, in der Wirtschaft oder im OP. Oder im Leben eines Heiligen. Jede Medaille hat zwei Seiten. »Eine meisterhafte, sehr lesbare und unterhaltsame Darstellung der Psychopathie und ihrer Manifestationen im Alltag. Manche seiner Ideen werden kontrovers diskutiert werden, aber es ist ein höchst anregendes Buch für alle, die die ›psychopathische‹ Welt, in der sie leben, besser verstehen wollen.« Prof. Dr. Robert Hare, Erfinder der Psychopathy Checklist

Psychopathy is a very important concept for those working in the field of criminal justice - investigators, prosecutors, and those who have to evaluate, manage and treat offenders. In Psychopathy: Theory, Research and Implications for Society, detailed, empirically based contributions by the world's leading researchers describe the relevance of the construct to practical and policy issues, examining its relevance to such topics as treatment, risk management and recidivism. The use of the concept in a range of populations is discussed, including juveniles, children, and the mentally disordered, as well as across cultures. The major strength of the volume is that the validity of the psychopathy construct is enhanced by the extensive empirical support: contributors explore topics including the genetic, biological, affective, interpersonal and information processing models that underpin the disorder. Audience: All those dealing with offenders - psychologists, psychiatrists, lawyers, judges, prison administrators and those who formulate policy in the criminal justice system.
