Reviews

-Few recent books offer new perspectives on the complex phenomenon of criminal aggression; most treat the subject from a unidisciplinary perspective, absent of any attempt to integrate the behavioral and social sciences. Tinder-Box Criminal Aggression is an exception to that dismal state of affairs, constituting one of the first true syntheses of seemingly contrasting paradigms into a unifying conceptualization of impulsive violence.- --Diana Fishbein, The Annals of the American Academy -Pallone and Hennessy's Tinder-Box Criminal Aggression is a fascinating, provocative, and challenging book. It is also likely to be a controversial work insofar as it attempts to link recent developments in the neurosciences with contemporary criminology to produce a comprehensive model for criminal aggression. In short, the authors propose a -stepwise progression from neurogenic-based impulsivity to criminally aggressive behavior.- --Dany Wedding, Psychiatric Services -Pallone and Hennessy argue that the criminal justice system due to its commitment to punishment and revenge is a failure, while it continues to ignore major scientific advances made in the neurosciences and in pharmacology which could be utilized to prevent or treat violent criminal behavior. If only this message could reach our politicians and lawyers.- --C. Ray Jeffrey, Professor Emeritus, School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, The Florida State University -Offers a close and critical view of explaining dangerous human behavior. . . . A key book for all concerned with trauma and violence.- --Ann W. Burgess, Chair and van Ameringen Professor of Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing, University of Pennsylvania -Presents convincing evidence of the powerful influence biological factors on criminal aggression, in particular impulsive ('tinder-box') aggression.- --Marc Hillbrand, Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Yale University School of Medicine -An extraordinary encyclopedic work which I will treasure as my definitive reference book on the multiple causes of criminal behavior.- --Jose A. Valciukas, Lincoln Medical Center and New York Medical College -Present[s] an enticing explanation of interpersonal violence which considers the contribution of casual variables at every conceivable level.- --Hans Toch, Distinguished Professor of Criminal Justice, State University of New York at Albany -The authors of this thought provoking book have a long-standing interest in violence and criminal behavior and approach their subject from their background as psychologists. Drawing on evidence from neurosciences, the authors link impulsive-aggressive violence to neuropsychological dysfunction.- --Donald W. Black, Contemporary Psychology -The book is comprehensive in its coverage of the biological, sociological, psychological and epidemiological literature and transcends disciplinary lines, which makes it essential reading for anyone concerned with violent behavior. . . . The book offers a new perspective on the complex phenomena of impulsive, aggressive violent behavior.- --Ruth A. Eichmiller, British Journal of Criminology Few recent books offer new perspectives on the complex phenomenon of criminal aggression; most treat the subject from a unidisciplinary perspective, absent of any attempt to integrate the behavioral and social sciences.
