Theories of crime: Links to free full text resources.

Here are some more links to articles and overviews that I think are useful for writers, students and others of you who are interested in criminal behaviour and forensic psychology. As before links to these have been on Twitter at some point but, if you follow, may have passed you by. I hope these are of use and please let me know what other types of information you would like to see up on here!
