How to understand the deviance that lies in ourselves and others - an original and rigorous exploration of the darkest recesses of the human mind.

Why do we think and do evil? What can science teach us about why humans do bad things? And what do our reactions to deviance teach us about ourselves?

Drawing together science, psychology and philosophy, Julia Shaw unlocks the intricacies of the world of criminal psychology. Grappling with thorny dilemmas from 'Would I kill baby Hitler?' to 'Why do I want to murder my spouse?', Making Evil will give you a better understanding of the world, yourself, and your Google search history.

Original, fresh and rigorous, Making Evil shines a searching light into the darker corners of the human psyche, illuminating a modern science of evil.
