    These two volumes contain a wealth of information directly pertinent to the understanding of criminal behavior but also significant to comprehending a significant part of the 20th Centuries contribution to the evolution of criminological thought, the practice of forensic psychiatry, and the concept of “clinical criminology.” Perhaps, most importantly, they chronicle the work of a man who's efforts aimed to better understand the criminal and improve the environment of incarceration. The place in criminal psycho dynamics and its application to “clinical criminology” defined by Bruno M. Cormier (1919C1991) is known and acknowledged by most students and practitioners in the field. These two volumes are a tribute to his memory, his work, and the influence he had on a discipline vital for civilization and yet ignored by it.
