This book develops a new theory of psychopathy, the antisocial personality, as the foundation for a new mode of therapeutic intervention. It begins with a definition of psychopathy, examines its etiology, and describes the psychological dynamics that characterize the psychopathic personality. Also it explores and critiques the four existing major theoretical perspectives on the nature of the disorder. Offering a new theory that utilizes the strengths of the the others and summarizes the relevant research supporting it, the book goes on to apply its clinical implications in diagnosis and therapy.
