With contributions from foremost experts, this authoritative handbook provides a state-of-the-science review of current knowledge on the psychopathic personality. Coverage includes major theoretical models; conceptual and definitional questions; assessment approaches; and etiological pathways, ranging from family and environmental factors to genes, neurotransmitters, and brain systems. Manifestations of psychopathy in specific populations are addressed, as are links to salient problem behaviors such as aggression, substance abuse, sexual offending, and recidivism. Clinical and legal issues are also examined in depth. Seamlessly edited, each major thematic section concludes with a summary chapter that integrates the findings presented and highlights key questions for future research.

Reviews

"Patrick has assembled a remarkably diverse group of cutting-edge scholars to explore in depth the etiology, assessment, and treatment of psychopathy. Clinically astute and scientifically rock-solid, the Handbook of Psychopathy is the single indispensable volume for researchers, practitioners, and students on what may be the most important forensic concept of the early 21st century."--John Monahan, PhD, University of Virginia School of Law"Patrick's masterful volume on psychopathy brings additional sophistication to this important and developing topic. Special strengths of the Handbook include its exceptional coverage of etiology and its applications to critical subpopulations. It documents the pressing need for more specialized interventions that target individual facets of psychopathy in forensic and nonforensic populations."--Richard Rogers, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of North Texas"The last two decades have seen a massive growth in biological, psychological, clinical, and epidemiological research on psychopathy. This authoritative, scholarly handbook, edited by one of the leaders in the field, brings together contemporary theoretical concepts and empirical research findings, and does so in an admirable fashion. The impressive range of authors includes senior figures and some of the best of the rising generation of younger researchers. There is no better source of current knowledge on all aspects of psychopathy, as well as on the research challenges that remain and the paradoxes still to be resolved."--Sir Michael Rutter, MD, FRS, FRCPsych, Institute of Psychiatry, London, UK"This is an outstanding volume that provides the most comprehensive account of psychopathy currently available. The editor has selected a first-rate panel of contributors to provide in-depth coverage of all that is known about the nature, origins, and treatment of psychopathy. The result is an indispensable resource for all serious students of personality disorder, whether in the mental health or forensic fields."--W. John Livesley, MD, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, University of British Columbia, Canada"I was thrilled to adopt this text for my graduate course on the psychology of criminal behavior. I loved the book and have been really pleased with the classroom outcomes and student evaluations of the book. Very few texts are able to provide such broad and timely coverage of a topic as polarizing as psychopathy. The collection of experts is impressive, their work is incisive, and the contribution to the field is immense. I recommend this definitive text to educators without reservation."--Kim A. Gorgens, PhD, Graduate School of Professional Psychology, University of Denver
