Publisher's Summary

Studies in Forensic Psychiatry is the product of extensive research into the psychological motivations for criminal behavior. Bernard Glueck draws his conclusions from a huge wealth of experience with the criminally insane and with the public health care systems. He recognized the need for criminology to be expanded to reflect a deeper understanding of motive and inclination on the part of the criminal, rather than being considered solely in terms of the criminal act itself. He also felt that further understanding of motivations would help to identify the criminal type and address their treatment and care in a manner more fitting to the needs of both society and the individual. As a result of Glueck's efforts, the psychoanalytic school of society experienced a revival in both theory and therapeutic usage.

The full narration of the text is preceded by a summary which examines the life of the author and the background of the work itself. Also included are an overview, synopsis, and analysis of the work. The summary is concluded with a section which explores the historical context, criticisms, and social impact of Glueck's work.

This work stands as a landmark piece in the evolution of the current approach to mental dysfunction in the field of criminology.
