Synopsis

This seminal book offers an insightful portrait of chronic predatory offenders, problem police officers, and others with a demonstrated propensity for violent conduct.Dr. Toch explores the personal motives, attitudes, assumptions, and perceptions of men who are recurrently violent.How patterned and consistent is the violence of such men?What are the dynamics of their escalating encounters?What personal dispositions and orientations are most apt to lead to violence?What can these observations tell us about the nature of human interaction, and violence itself?Violent Men offers not only scholarly research on violence, but also a sense of the humanity of its subjects.This special, 25th Anniversary Edition of Violent Men confronts recent debates over police violence, describes new clinical applications, and offers reflections from preeminent scholars on the widespread impact and enduring power of Dr. Toch's classic work.

Hans Toch is Distinguished Professor Emeritus at the University at Albany of the State University of New York, USA, where he is affiliated with the School of Criminal Justice. He is a recipient of the Hadley Cantril Memorial Award (for Men in Crisis), the August Vollmer Award of the American Society of Criminology for outstanding contributions to applied criminology, the Prix DeGreff from the International Society of Criminology for Distinction in Clinical Criminology, and the Research Award of the International Corrections and Prison Association.
