Kurzbeschreibung

The popularity of television shows and movies like Profiler, CSI, and The Silence of the Lambs has made the concept of criminal profiling familiar to most Americans. Though such dramas follow the general approach of real-life criminal investigative analysis, artistic license often results in a simplistic and sensationalistic image of the complex work of profilers. In this compilation of expert articles internationally recognized homicide investigators, most of them pioneers in developing the science and the art of profiling, share their insights gained from years of experience tracking the perpetrators of some of the most notorious crimes.

Among the subjects discussed are:

-dealing with hostage situations
-child abduction and murder in the David Meirhofer case
-interviewing Jeffrey Dahmer
-autoerotic murder
-the challenges of creating psychological profiles
-the use of forensic linguistics to track the Unabomber
-assaultative eye injury ("enucleation")
-geographic profiling

A must for readers of true crime, forensic investigations, and murder mysteries, this unique collection of revealing articles offers a chilling and unparalleled glimpse into the workings of the criminal mind.

Synopsis

The popularity of television shows like NBC's "Profiler" and movies such as "Silence of the Lambs" has made the concept of criminal profiling familiar to most Americans. Though such dramas follow the general approach of real-life criminal investigative analysis, Hollywood's artistic license too often simplifies and even sensationalises the work of those who attempt to unravel the complex workings of the criminal mind. In this compilation of expert articles written by internationally recognised homicide investigators - most of them pioneers in developing the science and the art of profiling - readers gain fascinating insights that could have emerged only after years of experience tracking and analysing the behaviour of some of America's most notorious serial criminals.In "Profilers", editors John H Campbell and Don DeNevi bring together for the first time a collection of articles on important facets of criminal profiling - which, for the most part, have remained a mystery to the general public.

The contributors cover many gripping topics - including an interview with cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer, details of autoerotic fatalities, the challenges of creating psychological profiles, and the use of forensic linguistics to track the Unabomber 0 and they try to understand why some killers go to such extremes as removing the eyes of their victims or setting their helpless victims ablaze. These contemporary pieces follow and expand upon some original articles on criminal profiling - reports on dealing with hostage situations and on sexual killers who disfigure their bodies.A must for readers of true crime, forensic investigations, and murder mysteries, this unique collection of revealing articles offers a chilling and unparalleled glimpse into the inner workings of the criminal mind.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best read on Profiling 19. Januar 2007
Von Michael R. Tobin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Criminal psychology and profiling are my areas of biggest interest in the realm of true crime. As I have a library of over 50 books on this and related topics I certainly feel qualified to write reviews on these books.

This book is devided into two parts. The first is a collection eleven odd articles from various bulletins and law enforcement magazines. Put simply, as the book tiltles them, this is a collection of the well known Original Behavioural Science Articles on Criminal Profiling. They are written by the 'who's who' from the era often referred to as 'The Golden Age of Profilers'. For this reason alone the book is well worth 'the price of admission.'

Part two covers comtemporary articles on Criminal Profiling. The topices are wide and varied covering such topics as Forensic Linguistics, Geographic Profiling to Assaultive Eye Injury and Enucleation.

I wondered how interested I would be in Forensic Linguistics but found the chapter facinating.

I feel most readers with an interest in the topic will find part one just great. In part two, since it covers such a wide range of areas I guess it's possible the odd chapter may not appearl to all.

The other plus here is the fact the book is broken into distinct articles by the editors so you can 'peice read' or do a 'cover to cover'.

I see the book as appealing to law inforcemnet personel, people like myself who don't work in law inforcement but have to deal with perpitrators and their victims and finally all those who enjoy the topic.

If I were forced to give up my entire library and keep just one book this would nearly have to be the one.

A great book, well done to Campbell and DeNevi, the editors.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Nothing less than a "Wow!" 26. Dezember 2009
Von Susan W B - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm an obsessed soon-to-be forensic nurse. (I already have the nurse part.)I've read lots of material on profilers - one of my favorite subjects. Most of the books are, to one degree or another, an homage to the profiler's ego and everyone contradicts everyone else. (Just read the other reviews.)I've found this to be true even for textbooks. There's always lots about who did what first and did it better. Very unprofessional in my humble opinion. I think the reviews I read here gave me the inspiration to try "Profilers". This is truly a wonderful and fun, yes fun, book to read. If you're into this sort of thing you'll know what I mean. It's definitely a beginners guide to profiling but I think even the mid-level enthusiast or professional would enjoy it. The book is a collection of articles, research papers and the like by many names you will instantly recognize. There are 2 sections to the book, the first made up of older contributions to the field. At first I was a little disappointed with this because I wanted the newest, most up to date material there was. I read those articles anyway and was really glad I did. I think knowing how it all started, how the first profilers worked and who the players were did a lot to add to my foundation. The 2nd section contains the newer material and does not disappoint. Since the articles are by many different people on many different topics you keep getting fresh perspectives. You don't have to read the book in order. I skipped to whatever chapter looked appealing at the moment and didn't feel it hurt the experience. Best of all, no ego trips to slog through.

This is a terrific read, especially for the beginner to the field. You will learn about profiles of all types, homicide, rape, mutilation, sexual homicide, crime scenes, organized vs. disorganized murderers, interviewing, linguistics, enucleation, cold cases, geographic profiling, child abductors, psychopaths, sadists, basic terminology and much, much more. All this is written in an easy, relaxed style that I think anyone who has an interest in forensics will enjoy.

The only thing that bugged me was the fact that they used a good bit of material from the FBI Law Enforcement Bulletins which are available online for free. Also, there was definitely a good bit of repetition of material. I still enjoyed the book so much I can't take away any points for those small issues.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Compiles articles from fifteen internationally recognized homicide investigators 6. Oktober 2005
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The concept of criminal profiling, once alien to the ordinary American, is today a part of our daily lives thanks to television shows and news programs, and Profilers: Leading Investigators Take You Inside The Criminal Mind compiles articles from fifteen internationally recognized homicide investigators, many of whom have contributed some of the basics to the art of profiling criminals. From dealing with hostage situations and murder to creating psychological profiles and geographic profiles, Profilers provides plenty of inside detail and will appeal not only to fans of true crime and murder mysteries, but those involved in law enforcement at many levels.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good 13. Dezember 2010
Von Lucero Mitchell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I admit I am not qualified to review in the top concerning profilers but this book does do a very good job of bringing many traits to the surface that most people are not aware of by simple conversation with sociopaths.

The conversation with Jeff Dalhmer is very revealing and in itself reveals but the author tears up the conversation to reveal the deepest of traits that surprisingly are in most men. This is most of what the book is, converse and disect and reveal.

I sincerely want to recommend a book which does an incredible job at revealing and Helping people, this one does.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mystery Writers Take Note: 17. September 2005
Von Christopher D. Estes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
If you're writing about murder, serial murder, spree murder, profiling, profiling from the crime scene, or the uses of forensic linguistics, you must read this book. There are a hundred novels that can be written about the "phases of the crime" alone.
