I might have done better to find a more recent edition of this. My edition (written in I think about 1993 or 1994) and what it says about computers is quaintly out-of-date. It tells you how to write code to construct your own text-only computer database to compare different crimes, and speculates that one day in the far distant future there might be some kind of statewide or nationwide system that could monitor criminals and sort out suspects that match the profile.

I've got very little exposure to criminology literature but it did strike me as a fairly comprehensive survey of the subject. That said, I walked away unconvinced that profiling is a particularly useful tool for law enforcement rather than the source of an entertaining sub-genre of police procedurals.

this is one of the only resources available in my entire library consortium on the titular topic, so I am happy to have access to it. However, the sources cited in this resource are extremely old - some are 25 years old, and there is a serious need for newer case studies in this book. I would have liked to read a bit about Santa Muerte in this book.

This book is a great overview of exactly who criminal analysts analyze. While an in-depth look into a killer or bomber won't be found here, it's a great book to expand the brain beyond "serial killers are weird."

Brilliant! I'm studying Criminology at university next year and this was on the reading list! It was the best book I have read on this topic and this is just amazing! So much information in readable short paragraphs.
