In an age of rapid advances in behavioural genetics, this book applies a unique genetic-social framework to the study of crime and criminal behaviour. Drawing upon evidence from evolutionary psychology and behavioural genetics, it offers an up-to-date and balanced account of the mutuality between genes and environment.

His recent books include Social Theory and Human Biotechnology and Reconstructing Postmodernism: Critical Debates (co-edited with Jason L.
