Are some criminals born, not made? What causes violence and how can we treat it? An Anatomy of Violence introduces readers to new ways of looking at these age-old questions.

Drawing on the latest scientific research, Adrian Raine explains what it reveals about the brains of murderers, psychopaths and serial killers.

Anti-social behaviour is complex, he argues, and based on the interaction between genetics and the biological and social environment in which a person is raised.

But the latest statistical evidence between certain types of biological and early behavioural warning signs is also very strong.

These are among the thorny issues we can no longer ignore and this book is an important milestone in our growing understanding of criminal behaviour.
