This edition of Criminal Psychology by Hans Gross is complete and in possession all of the original tables, diagrams, notes and appendices.
A landmark classic in psychological manuals designed for professionals working in the field of law, Criminal Psychology has since its original appearance in 1911 proven itself a text of resounding practical use. Translated into multiple languages from the original German, over the years the book has been consulted and praised by countless lawyers, senior members of the judiciary, and students of law. 
Despite dating to the beginning of the 20th century, many of the observations by Gross are grounded in the decades of experience he assembled in the courts as both a jurist and magistrate. The manner in which criminals answer questions, their body language, and how they approach their own defence is covered in such intense detail that a significant portions of the text retain value even in the modern day, despite formal disciplines of criminology and psychology having since advanced in strides. 
Taken as a whole, this book may be considered both a reference source and a practical guide for the aspiring lawyer, and other members of a competent and observant courtroom committed to just outcomes. Various important points, such as being familiar with the dialect and culture criminals hail from, the use of techniques to encourage the memory of those under questioning, and the range of emotions typically expressed on the dock, are noted. 
Whether you are an enthusiast of courtroom procedure, a practising lawyer, teacher or student of the law, Criminal Psychology is a superb manual worthy of owning.
