The Aetiology of Serial Murder - Disclaimer

Wednesday 14 November 2001 in Criminology 8 Comment(s)

This was a thesis written in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of M.Phil. in Criminology at the University of Cambridge, in 1996/1997. Suffice to say, my thinking on the subject matter has advanced somewhat since then (some of the comments about determinism/freewill make me cringe!). I put it up on the web in 1998 (I didn't have time to look for a publisher...) and it has since received many thousands of hits. You are welcome to download a copy in any of the formats, and distribute the thesis freely as long as you make no monetary gain from such distribution. The thesis must not be modified, misrepresented, or distributed in part except for citation. If you wish to cite quotations etc. from this thesis, you are welcome to do so - I suspect a suitable citation might be: Mitchell, E. W. (1997). The aetiology of serial murder: towards an integrated model. Unpublished M.Phil. thesis, University of Cambridge, UK. The author, Edward W. Mitchell, bears no liability for proper or improper use of the thesis or information contained therein, e.g. by law enforcement agencies. Hope you enjoy it; I seem to recall that I enjoyed writing it! Edward W. Mitchell, 1997-2001. Download Thesis

What makes an individual criminal? Does criminality have a particular cause? If so can this cause be eliminated and the criminality prevented? Early explanations relied on biological explanations of criminality.
