    Abstract

    Psychopathy, as defined by Dr. Meloy, is “a deviant developmental disturbance characterized by an inordinate amount of instinctual aggression in the absence of an object relational capacity to bond.” The author initially provides a psychobiological foundation for understanding psychopathy and later uses object relations theory to conceptualize this disorder further. Four sections, consisting of eight chapters which can be read independently, comprise this book.
