Quatrième de couverture

Praise for Crime Classification Manual

"The very first book by and for criminal justice professionals in the major case fields. . . . The skills, techniques, and proactive approaches offered are creatively concrete and worthy of replication across the country. . . . Heartily recommended for those working in the ′front line′ of major case investigation."
John B. Rabun Jr., ACSW, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, National Center for Missing and Exploited Children

"[CCM] is an outstanding resource for students pursuing forensic science degrees. It provides critical information on major crimes, which improve the user′s ability to assess and evaluate."
Paul Thomas Clements, PhD, APRN–BC, CGS, DF–IAFN Drexel University Forensic Healthcare Program

This Book Has Everything 30 mai 2013
Par Lita Perna - Publié sur
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
If you have read about true crime you've probably read John E. Douglas, Ann W. Burgess, and Robert K. Ressler. These experts and Allen G. Burgess are the authors of this Crime Classification Manual.

If you are curious enough to read this review I think this 544 page volume (plus index) will fascinate you. The manual, according to the authors has received notice from FBI Investigative profilers, law enforcement officers, corrections and parole staff, mental health staff and students in forensic and criminal justice studies.

The crime Classification Manual is similar to the Diagnostic and Statistic Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) used by the psychiatric community to diagnose patients and facilitate communication and research (and debate) within the mental health field.

The stated purpose of this volume is to:

Standardize terminology within the criminal justice field; facilitate communication within the CJ field and between criminal justice and mental health; educate the CJ system and the public, and to develop a data base for investigative research.

The manual is divided into three sections: Crime analysis and Investigation, Classification of Crime Categories and Legal Issues.

Each crime includes victimology, crime scene indicators, staging, common forensic findings and investigative considerations and is followed by a case study.

There are five chapters about Homicide, and chapters about Arson/Bombing, Rape and Sexual Assault, Nonlethal Crimes, Computer Crimes, Increased Globalization of Crime, Mass and Serial Homicide and Poison and Biological weapons.

What makes this book so fascinating are the case studies.

This is a reference book. It is not the kind of book that is meant to be read from cover to cover but here's a warning: you may plan to spend only minutes with this manual but you'll wind up spending hours.

This book is a must read for anyone who is interested in true crime.

A solid reference that makes for surprisingly good reading. 31 mai 2013

I found the Douglas, Ressler, & Burgess book to be quite compelling reading with good classifications which make it easy for the layman to absorb the basic profiles of criminological classifications. It combines historical, anecdotal, and case studies along with a solid legal framework for any given subject. While not quite a professional text, it can serve the needs of psychologists and law enforcement personnel equally.

This review is for the Third Edition of Crime Classification Manual.

As one who always wonders why it is the female spouse whom poisons the husband with arsenic I jumped to chapter 17 "Poison And Biological Agents As Weapons" and as pointed out the case of Dorothea Puente (7 confirmed poisonings). Of interest were a couple of male dominated poisonings.

The shrinks have their DSM's (Diagnostic And Statistical Manual Of Mental Disorders) The upcoming DSM 5 will be published in May 2013.

Now, the updated CCM includes coverage of new technologies and a global persepective. The book follows the DSM's method of subdividing major categories (Arson/Bombing) has 47 such subdivisions.

Of course both John Douglas & Robert Ressler are famous from their many TV crime shows, it is nice to also be able to peruse some of their writings. The anatomy of motives and the methods used are clearly outlined in 17 chapters.

Of course as in mental health texts, it is possible to fall under multiple categories ... this is clearly pointed out. The FBI method of profiling, offender profiling & forensic psychology make up the bulk of the book. 2 chapters at the end address interviewing/interrogation techniques as well as wrongful convictions to help "balance" the book out.

Those who have followed Forensic Psychiatrist Dr. Michael Stone's "Most Evil" TV show will find the book of similar interest. Most Evil

Academic Text, But Interesting! 15 mai 2013

First, although this book is written in clear, easy-to-understand language, it is not really intended for laypersons. To get the most out of this book, you'd best be very familiar with the legal/psychological aspects of crime. Laypeople hoping for true crime type stories are bound to be disappointed. The closest comparison I can make is that this book is kind of like the DSM of criminology. For example, rape, its various perpetrators, and types and motivations are discussed in great detail, most of it legal and psychological. Real life cases, where applicable, are used to highlight the type of crime being discussed, but only in the briefest of fashions. If you are a student, professional in the field, or crime writer, this book will be of great interest. It's very well-organized and well-written.

All Detectives Need to Study This 14 juillet 2013
Par Richard J. Johnson - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Crime Classification Manual: A Standard System for Investigating and Classifying Violent Crimes John E. Douglas, Ann W. Burgess, Robert K. Ressler, I first read this book as a required textbook during my investigative career. This book was written primarily as a tool for law enforcement investigators. Investigators in the field of violent crime can use behavioral science for providing a character type for each of the main crime classes. This book is an extremely well-organized collection of research, information and statistical data related to sexual homicides and what that distinguishes them from other types of motivated murders. This book is a study founded by the FBI Behavioral Science Unit, that illustrates the development of criminal profiling techniques and insights into the mind-set of sexual killers.This book is an excellent resource for all homicide detectives. It is essential reading for an understanding of serial-killer behavior and detection. You may find it dry if it's not your field of interest. I still have mine and go through it as needed for research.
