The Criminal Brain, Second Edition

Understanding Biological Theories of Crime

What is the relationship between criminality and biology? Nineteenth-century phrenologists insisted that criminality was innate, inherent in the offender’s brain matter. While they were eventually repudiated as pseudo-scientists, today the pendulum has swung back. Both criminologists and biologists have begun to speak of a tantalizing but disturbing possibility: that criminality may be inherited as a set of genetic deficits that place one at risk to commit theft, violence, or acts of sexual deviance. But what do these new theories really assert? Are they as dangerous as their forerunners, which the Nazis and other eugenicists used to sterilize, incarcerate, and even execute thousands of supposed “born” criminals? How can we prepare for a future in which leaders may propose crime-control programs based on biology? In this second edition of The Criminal Brain, Nicole Rafter, Chad Posick, and Michael Rocque describe early biological theories of crime and provide a lively, up-to-date overview of the newest research in biosocial criminology. New chapters introduce the theories of the latter part of the 20th century; apply and critically assess current biosocial and evolutionary theories, the developments in neuro-imaging, and recent progressions in fields such as epigenetics; and finally, provide a vision for the future of criminology and crime policy from a biosocial perspective. The book is a careful, critical examination of each research approach and conclusion. Both compiling and analyzing the body of scholarship devoted to understanding the criminal brain, this volume serves as a condensed, accessible, and contemporary exploration of biological theories of crime and their everyday relevance.

Yahudi, Kristian, Hindu, dan Buddha Berasal daripada Islam?

Ada beberapa perkara yang menjadi persoalan: Mengapa dalam agama Islam yang dibawa oleh Nabi Muhammad s.a.w. terdapat kisah-kisah nabi terdahulu? Apa kaitan Baginda dengan nabi-nabi terdahulu? Nabi Muhammad s.a.w. adalah berbangsa Arab, namun kenapa Al-Quran harus bercakap mengenai bangsa lain terutama sekali bangsa Yahudi? Mengapa Al-Quran mengakui kitab-kitab terdahulu, malah terdapat banyak persamaan hukum di dalamnya? Bagaimana Nabi Muhammad s.a.w. tahu mengenai kisah para nabi bangsa Yahudi, sedangkan dalam sejarah hidup Baginda tidak pernah belajar mengenai agama Yahudi dan tidak pernah membaca Taurat dan Injil? Jawapan kepada empat soalan ini hanyalah satu. Islam yang dibawa oleh Nabi Muhammad s.a.w. adalah agama yang telah dibawa oleh nabi-nabi terdahulu, yang diturunkan melalui wahyu oleh Tuhan yang satu. Sekiranya Nabi Muhammad s.a.w. itu membawa agama baru, sudah tidak ada kepentingan baginya untuk menceritakan kisah nabi terdahulu dan tidak perlu mengakui bahawa kitab Taurat dan Injil itu adalah kitab yang diturunkan oleh Tuhan. Sekiranya agama Islam ini tidak ada kaitan dengan nabi terdahulu, Baginda tidak perlu bersusah payah untuk mengkhabarkan mengenai orang Yahudi, Nasrani, Sabien, dan Majusi kerana Baginda berbangsa Arab, manakala kesemua kelompok itu bukanlah daripada kalangan bangsa Arab.

Practical Approaches to Method Validation and Essential Instrument Qualification

Practical approaches to ensure that analytical methods and instruments meet GMP standards and requirements Complementing the authors' first book, Analytical Method Validation and Instrument Performance Verification, this new volume provides coverage of more advanced topics, focusing on additional and supplemental methods, instruments, and electronic systems that are used in pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and clinical testing. Readers will gain new and valuable insights that enable them to avoid common pitfalls in order to seamlessly conduct analytical method validation as well as instrument operation qualification and performance verification. Part 1, Method Validation, begins with an overview of the book's risk-based approach to phase appropriate validation and instrument qualification; it then focuses on the strategies and requirements for early phase drug development, including validation of specific techniques and functions such as process analytical technology, cleaning validation, and validation of laboratory information management systems Part 2, Instrument Performance Verification, explores the underlying principles and techniques for verifying instrument performance—coverage includes analytical instruments that are increasingly important to the pharmaceutical industry, such as NIR spectrometers and particle size analyzers—and offers readers a variety of alternative approaches for the successful verification of instrument performance based on the needs of their labs At the end of each chapter, the authors examine important practical problems and share their solutions. All the methods covered in this book follow Good Analytical Practices (GAP) to ensure that reliable data are generated in compliance with current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP). Analysts, scientists, engineers, technologists, and technical managers should turn to this book to ensure that analytical methods and instruments are accurate and meet GMP standards and requirements.

In this chapter we aim to explain the differences and subtleties that particle sizing
techniques give in comparison to other measurement regimes with which the
laboratory manager or analyst may be familiar. Out of the possible 300 or 400
particle sizing techniques, there are only a few that are used routinely within the
modern pharmaceutical environment (see, e.g., BS 8471:2007, Guide to Particle
Size Methods, BSI, Chiswick, UK). Some techniques have withstood the test of
