Descripción Pantheon. 1 Cloth(s), 2013. hard. Estado de conservación: New. Why do some kids grow up to become cold-blooded killers? Is bad biology partly to blame? For more than three decades, criminologist Adrian Raine has been researching the biological roots of violence, in the process establishing neurocriminology—applying neuroscience techniques to investigate the causes and cures of crime—as a scientific field. Through case studies of well-known killers in history, including Richard Speck, Ted Kaczynski, and Henry Lee Lucas, Raine illustrates how impairments to brain—in areas controlling our ability to experience fear, make good decisions, and feel guilt—predispose us to violence. "[The author] makes a good case that certain genetic, neurological, and physiological factors do predict violent behavior. Many of his proposals focus on early development: encouraging pregnant women not to smoke and drink, and working to ensure that young children get proper nutrition and protection from toxicants—not to mention eating plenty of fish. He argues, convincingly, that such benign and relatively cheap interventions could have huge social benefits."—NYTBR"Once reviled because of its ties to eugenics, the idea that criminal impulses are rooted in biology has been reinvigorated by the Human Genome Project. Criminologist Raine applauds a growing cross-disciplinary approach and the growth of neurocriminology that looks at the biological and social factors behind criminal behavior, but his focus is firmly on the biological. Raine explores famous criminal cases, from Ted Bundy to the Unabomber to more obscure figures, and offers compelling research, including brain scans of psychopaths, schizophrenics, and others, to demonstrate the hard science behind some criminal and antisocial behavior from domestic violence to murder. Raine also analyzes research on adoption and twins to study the different impacts of nature versus nurture, as well as environmental factors that affect brain development, including nutrition, smoking, and drug abuse. Finally, Raine explores the practical implications of neurocriminology on the legal system, public health issues, and the future treatment of criminal and antisocial behavior. Although the topic will certainly continue to provoke controversy, Raine offers a highly accessible look at the latest research on the biology behind criminal behavior."—Booklist 478.

Descripción Pantheon, 2013. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Well-written and engaging. . . . Mr. Raine reminds us of all the interesting things we do know about genes, brains and the environment that can tilt someone toward anti-social behavior. . . . For those unfamiliar with these arguments and the important supporting scientific literature, The Anatomy of Violence is a good read. What makes it something more is Mr. Raine''s contention that violence is a public-health issue and that this forces upon society some uncomfortable ideas about possible interventions. Mr. Raine sees violence as a mental disorder and argues that it should be treated as such." - The Wall Street Journal "Are 'criminal tendencies' hard-wired or acquired? . . . Psychologist Adrian Raine argues the biological case, marshalling swathes of findings and case studies of murderers and rapists. . . . Provocative and bristling with data, the book's complexities fail to boil down to a simple answer." - Nature "Groundbreaking. . . . Never before has a 'map of the criminal mind' been written about so convincingly. . . . Raine offers us the most compelling look to date at the connection between human genetics and human acts of violence. . . . The Anatomy of Violence will convince even the most skeptical that there is a genetic or biological cause for the violence exhibited by psychopaths across all cultures. Without doubt, the book should be required reading for any student of criminology. The Anatomy of Violence is an astonishingly accessible account of all the major elements-environmental, social, biochemical, psychological, and neurological-related to crime and human violence, leading us to the conclusion that yes, some people are natural born killers." - New York Journal of Books "Lively, engaging. . . . A convincing case that violent criminals are biologically different from the rest of us. . . . [Raine] has the research at his fingertips-not surprising, since he carried out much of it-and makes a compelling case that society needs to grapple with the biological underpinnings of violent crime just as vigorously as the social causes, if not more so." - New Scientist "An extremely informative, thoughtful and illuminating book . . . a tour de force." -David P Farrington, Psychological Medicine "A passionately argued, well-written, and fascinating take on the biology of violence and its legal and ethical implications." - Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Raine explores famous criminal cases, from Ted Bundy to the Unabomber to more obscure figures, and offers compelling research, including brain scans of psychopaths, schizophrenics, and others, to demonstrate the hard science behind some criminal and antisocial behavior from domestic violence to murder. . . . Although the topic will certainly continue to provoke controversy, Raine offers a highly accessible look at the latest research on the biology behind criminal behavior." - Booklist "Sure to be controversial, especially in the context of the current debate on guns and the prevention of violence." - Kirkus Reviews "Violence comes in many varieties. Poverty and political persecution are good examples of violence, but so are mass killings and rape. Adrian Raine has spent decades investigating the latter variety. His book is an exhaustive, unvarnished survey of what is known about the neurobiological correlates of physical violence. It is deeply informative and it makes for disquieting reading. It wisely refrains from claiming a single cause for the problem or advocating a single solution. It is an indispensable reference." -Antonio Damasio, author of Descartes' Error and Self Comes to Mind "Human beings are capable of the most appallingly violent crimes. In The Anatomy of Violence Adrian Raine offers us a thorough yet sparkling, erudite but beautifully written account of why this is the case and where our capacity for such violence originates. He focuses on the biological basis of violence. Using. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0307378845

Descripción Pantheon Books, United States, 2013. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 231 x 155 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. With a 4-page full-color insert, and black-and-white illustrations throughout Why do some innocent kids grow up to become cold-blooded serial killers? Is bad biology partly to blame? For more than three decades Adrian Raine has been researching the biological roots of violence and establishing neurocriminology, a new field that applies neuroscience techniques to investigate the causes and cures of crime. In The Anatomy of Violence, Raine dissects the criminal mind with a fascinating, readable, and far-reaching scientific journey into the body of evidence that reveals the brain to be a key culprit in crime causation. Raine documents from genetic research that the seeds of sin are sown early in life, giving rise to abnormal physiological functioning that cultivates crime. Drawing on classical case studies of well-known killers in history including Richard Speck, Ted Kaczynski, and Henry Lee Lucas Raine illustrates how impairments to brain areas controlling our ability to experience fear, make good decisions, and feel guilt predispose us to violence. He contends that killers can actually be coldhearted: something as simple as a low resting heart rate can give rise to violence. But arguing that biology is not destiny, he also sketches out provocative new biosocial treatment approaches that can change the brain and prevent violence. Finally, Raine tackles the thorny legal and ethical dilemmas posed by his research, visualizing a futuristic brave new world where our increasing ability to identify violent offenders early in life might shape crime-prevention policies, for good and bad. Will we sacrifice our notions of privacy and civil rights to identify children as potential killers in the hopes of helping both offenders and victims? How should we punish individuals with little to no control over their violent behavior? And should parenting require a license? The Anatomy of Violence offers a revolutionary appraisal of our understanding of criminal offending, while also raising provocative questions that challenge our core human values of free will, responsibility, and punishment.
