Adrian Raine is the Richard Perry University Professor in the Departments of Criminology, Psychiatry, and Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania. For the past 35 years, his research has focused on the neurobiological and biosocial bases of antisocial and violent behavior, and ways to both prevent and treat it in both children and adults.
Fascinating ... Has profound implications ... It is remarkable that most of the work Raine outlines remains largely unknown to the wider public ... It is high time this defect was remedied -- David Rose * Mail on Sunday * This remarkable book offers startling evidence of the links between our biology and criminality ... powerful and well-written ... I commend his intelllectual courage -- Jenni Russell * Sunday Times * Raine's book is a masterpiece. He 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 -- Bob Holmes * New Scientist * Adrian Raine has devoted his career to uncovering the causes of human violence ... This important book is a most valuable contribution -- Daniel Dennett * Prospect *
