about this item

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?  And 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.
