A compelling integration of psychobiological data on predatory aggression in humans. Dr. Meloy covers the clinical spectrum of psychopathic behavior, making the book of value to all therapists. He presents psychopathy as a distinct entity and a characterological component of a variety of other disorders. The Psychopathic Mind is the most significant contribution to psychopathy since the publication of Cleckley's Mask of Sanity in 1941. We are introduced in these pages to the thinking of Otto Kernberg and Ted Bundy. There are quotes from the Bible and the Boston Strangler. This book is required reading for anyone who wishes to understand psychopathic behavior. (Tanay, Emanuel)
