Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Brent E. Turvey spent his first years in college on a pre-med track only to change his course of study once his true interests took hold. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from Portland State University in Psychology, with an emphasis on Forensic Psychology, and an additional Bachelor of Science degree in History. He went on to receive his Masters of Science in Forensic Science after studying at the University of New Haven, in West Haven, Connecticut. Since graduating in 1996, Brent has consulted with many agencies, attorneys, and police departments in the United States, Australia, China, Canada, Barbados and Korea on a range of rapes, homicides, and serial/ multiple rape/ death cases, as a forensic scientist and criminal profiler. He has also been court qualified as an expert in the areas of criminal profiling, forensic science, victimology, and crime reconstruction. In August of 2002, he was invited by the Chinese People's Police Security University (CPPSU) in Beijing to lecture before groups of detectives at the Beijing, Wuhan, Hanzou, and Shanghai police bureaus. In 2005, he was invited back to China again, to lecture at the CPPSU, and to the police in Beijing and Xian - after the translation of the 2nd edition of his text into Chinese for the University. In 2007, he was invited to lecture at the 1st Behavioral Sciences Conference at the Home Team (Police) Academy in Singapore, where he also provided training to their Behavioral Science Unit. In 2012 Brent completed his PhD in Criminology from Bond University in Gold Coast, Australia. He is the author of Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Editions (1999, 2002, 2008, 2011); co- author of the Rape Investigation Handbook, 1st and 2nd Editions (2004, 2011), Crime Reconstruction 1st and 2nd Editions (2006, 2011), Forensic Victimology (2008) and Forensic Fraud (2013) - all with Elsevier Science. He is currently a full partner, Forensic Scientist, Criminal Profiler, and Instructor with Forensic Solutions, LLC, and an Adjunct Professor of Justice Studies at Oklahoma City University.

HASH(0x92e607e0) von 5 Sternen Even better than 3rd Edition 3. August 2011
Von Jimmy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Criminal Profiling 4th Edition is even better than the famous 3rd edition!

I got my copy not all that long ago and so far I am pleased to see new content, everything is a lot more organized and easy to follow.

There are 25 chapters split in to 5 sections which are:

Section 1 - Introduction To Criminal Profiling
Section 2 - Forensic Victimology
Section 3 - Crime Scene Analysis
Section 4 - Offender Characteristics
Section 5 - Professional Issues

The terrorism chapter is much more expanded on the previous editions also.

As for the review left by "tactical tradecraft" needless to say this person did not read the last 2 editions of this textbook and obviously has something against personal against Turvey.

This previous review was copied from the 3rd edition page and pasted on 4th edition... you should not post reviews if you have not bought/read the text - please refer to the following review [...]

All in all, I recommend 4th edition, even more than 3rd :)

HASH(0x92e60558) von 5 Sternen Hung up a sign "I'm a Profiler!" 17. März 2013
Von Peter M. Klismet, Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have to give this guy a lot of credit for self-promotion based on a minimal amount of knowledge and absolutely no prior experience. He went to college, got a degree and later a master's. Then he apparently decided he was a 'profiler.' This is a danger, because almost literally someone else could take a few psych classes or like a Pat Brown, be a good housewife and have an oddball tenant, and then declare herself a profiler. And worse yet, to have a loyal cadre of people who form something of a cult around his beliefs.

Having been trained by the FBI and having studied and profiled several hundred cases as a profiler in an FBI field office, I still wonder if I know enough to profess all of the knowledge Mr. Turvey claims to have acquired. He is the antithesis of what we were trained to do, namely to gain a wealth of experience working on REAL cases, then perhaps you are qualified to profile cases. Perhaps. However, Mr. Turvey apparently decided he was interested in profiling, and off he goes. He skipped right over the important part, having some EXPERIENCE before you profess some great knowledge.

There are probably some unfortunate students out there who have been taught 'profiling' directly out of one of Mr. Turvey's textbooks, and the professor has not spent a single moment ever viewing a crime scene. I just hope this doesn't become the standard, because the FBI pioneered the concept of criminal profiling, continues to do research, has the three 'Icons' of Ressler, Douglas and Hazelwood, who actually learned and did research, as opposed to magically declaring themselves as 'wizards' of profiling like this guy has. But, I'll give him some credit for self-promotion. Unfortunately, his background #or lack of it#, makes him a borderline fraud and charlatan.

HASH(0x92c39498) von 5 Sternen A text for professionals 18. August 2011
Von forpsy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The chapter on logic and cognition should be required as part of the education of any forensic professional (and most, if not all, non-forensic education).

The addition of chapters on forensic psychology and terrorism further cement this text as the standard go-to text for anyone affiliated with the criminal justice system.

if you are looking for THE educational text on profiling, Turvey and his co-authors have provided it.

HASH(0x92c396a8) von 5 Sternen Fundamental Reading! 4. August 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Mr. Turvey has again expanded the subject matter and content of the 4th Edition of Criminal Profiling. I have known Mr. Turvey since the publication of the 1st Edition and the "set" of four editions provides a great collection of discussions and materials written by Mr. Turvey and a prominent collection forensic scientists, psychologists, psychiatrists and criminal investigators in the world. I know Mr. Turvey to be an obsessive fact checker and the cases and assessments he makes regarding case forensic analysis and profiling methodologies are well researched and documented. Similarily, his contributing authors are solid and focused on their topics. Criminal Profiling, Fourth Edition: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis, continues to lay a broad and solid foundation to the subject. It is no wonder that it is a leading textbook on the topic at various universities throughout the world. There are several approaches to behavioral evidence analysis ---some are based on sound research and methodology and others fraught with fraud and politics. Mr. Turvey does an excellent job of educating the reader/student as to what questions to ask to tell the difference. Needless to say, when the light of science exposes those practices which cannot be supported by a scientific method, the scientist doing so is occasionally the object of criticism by those fleeing from exposure. Mr. Turvey has never shirked controversy and his striving for intellectual honesty make this text refreshing in a field all too often in need of more professional accountability. This text is a great primer and reference to understanding the topics discussed.

HASH(0x939ac390) von 5 Sternen Book Review of Criminal Profiling: An introduction to behavior evidence analysis 16. Juni 2013
Von SSgt Richard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Criminal profiling is an integral component of the criminal justice system. It allows for crime scene reconstruction, and allows for the tracking of suspects based upon their perceived habits and whereabouts. Some of the effects that criminal profiling has on the criminal justice system is that it allows for the inference of traits of individuals responsible for committing crimes (Turvey, 2012, p. 5). Written by Brent Turvey of Forensic Solutions, LLC, "Criminal Profiling: An introduction to behavior evidence analysis" instructs on the vast subfields and applicability of criminal profiling to modern day criminal justice. The cover photo of a faded handprint gives the reader a visual trigger for mystery as the field of criminal profiling and behavioral evidence analysis is truly a mystery to most people. This textbook is targeted to instruct individuals in the proper methodology of criminal profiling in regards to behavior evidence analysis. In the introduction Brent Turvey describes many of the misconceptions of criminal justice, and explains how criminal profilers must work for the system, not for themselves (Turvey , 2012, p. xxiii). The textbook is an effective tool for the individual wishing to study behavioral evidence analysis.
This textbook does an excellent job of bringing the reader into the history of criminal profiling with respect to behavior evidence analysis (BEA). Unbeknown to most, criminal profiling originated in the persecution of so called witches by the Church. The information used to determine whether an individual was a witch or not was based upon an established profile (however flawed), such as having birthmarks or pets (Turvey, 2012, p. 9). Moving on from the origins of criminal profiling the textbook moves on to identifying the forensic analysis that makes up BEA. The BEA unit at the FBI is covered in detail and brings an entirely new career path to light that is rarely seen without insider perspective. Crime scene analysis and crime reconstruction are areas of heavy focus in chapters 11 through 16. This is usually the most appealing area of criminal justice. The textbook describes the differences between what is displayed on television on shows such as CSI, Law and Order, and even NCIS. What is typically thought of as crime scene analysis is actually a much different than thought, and this textbook describes it in detail with recreation of actual crimes and circumstances that challenge the reader and bring them insight into live crime scenes. The text also goes into a relative amount of detail on forensic victimology. There are four chapters devoted to forensic victimology and its relation to criminal profiling. This area although not often thought of as central to the core of criminal profiling, but it allows for offender profiles to be created based upon contacts that the victims may have had or even some of their preferences (Turvey, 2012, p. 178,182). Additionally the text covers the characteristics of the offenders, and how they can be inferred from a crime scene analysis. Modus Operandi commonly referred to as a MO is discussed and the distinguishing characteristics that make it different than a signature left by an offender. This textbook also goes into the ethical dilemmas faced by criminal profilers in the performance of their duties.
Overall this textbook is ideal for anyone taking a criminal profiling class, or someone who simply desires to build skills in criminal profiling. It is a dramatically helpful textbook that brings you into the real life world of criminal justice, along with the procedures and practices that allow for investigators to find offenders. This textbook does a phenomenal job of informing and teaching about behavior evidence analysis and the criminal profiles that result.
