Abstract

This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of motivations, from the perspective of both the offender and the victim. This includes a developmental view of the pathways that lead to the development of certain motivations, for both offenders and victims, and details the role of self-esteem, personality, and personality disorder. The authors feel that this holistic treatment provides a never-before-seen treatment of the issue. As noted, this chapter serves as the capstone to both conceptual sections of this book, both from the perspective of criminal profiling and serial crime, of all sorts.
