AIP 314 The Criminal Mind: Psychological and Political Perspectives (UP)

We will examine the psychological and political forces that affected the commission of individuals who have committed various crimes, including murder, kidnapping, assassination, and acts of terrorism. Through in-depth analyses of these cases we will explore political events, including the Women’s Movement, Civil Rights Movement, Gay Rights Movement, the development of cults and the “The war on terror.”
