In the landscape, unfortunately, so poor of local literature in the field of Criminology, Alin Les's work on crime, criminal and criminality is more than welcome.
From the first lines, the author confesses to us that the work "combines an approach in both scientific and literary terms... and from this perspective it fits, according to the language of Baruch Spinoza, in what is called "scientific literature".
Indeed, the author constantly oscillates between the fiction and the scientific style, involving himself and the reader in the analysis of the consciousness processes of the contemporary man, who reaches the threshold of committing a criminal act and sometimes, unfortunately, transgresses it.
Through the way in which it tries to answer the extremely complex problems that such introspection implies, without - as Adrian Marino shows - imposing the answers on us and without dogmatizing them, the work presents itself as an essay of "more humane criminology" as as the author reveals himself.
Being an atypical work of criminology, its reading is not at all easy, the author constantly appeals to the fields from which Criminology was born, but also to those that he added along the way, as the sciences of human nature have progressed and diversified. Laudable in this regard is the author's ambition to add new dimensions to the highly prestigious interdisciplinary synthesis models made by the School of Criminology in Montreal, Louvain and beyond, which will contribute to the construction of a Romanian model. Without discouraging Alin Les, I am afraid that - in the only country in the European Union and probably among the few in the world where there is no scientific research structure in the field of Criminology, where only two years after its establishment, within the Ministry Justice, the National Institute of Criminology was disbanded abusively, in a guilty "silence" of all the actors involved directly (political decision-makers) or indirectly (the teaching and academic staff), and more recently in the same country, the only specialized magazine ( The Journal of Criminology, Criminalistics and Penology) is about to cease its publication - such an approach is, if not impossible, extremely difficult to achieve.
The work includes two parts. A general part called Pre-Criminology and criminological psychology which the author positions as an adjunct to the special part, in which phenomenology, anthropology, psychology represent the visionary frames for the author's explorations and a special part in which the universe "of the one who gets to pass to the act" is examined using the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-4) as a starting point.
I can't help but notice the author's elegant, erudite style, but I warn the reader that understanding Alin Les's thoughts requires in-depth knowledge of human sciences.
I have no doubt that the author will continue his research, enriching with arguments and demonstrations the scientific side of his contributions to the development of Criminology and Criminological Psychology. Because the delinquent and the delinquent are - as noted by renowned researchers in the field of clinical criminology Diane Casoni and Louis Brunet - ultimately legal constructions, rather "than psychological or psychoanalytical conceptualizations, especially since an individual is not reducible to the sum the acts he commits".

Bibliographic references / 246


8 years have passed since the launch of the first edition, in an honorable environment at that time: the Romanian Academy. From our own resources, 100 copies were printed. The book went unnoticed in the specialty landscape, but it sold relatively quickly. From where I conclude that the interest exists and is doubled from behind the curtain by the novelties of the perspectives.
Criminology in Romania is not doing well at all. The phenomenon is well-known, it doesn't need to be mentioned anymore. But what I want to highlight is that the focus on evidence-based criminology is almost non-existent. Treaties in the field of criminal law do not converge towards an exhaustive integration of novelties in related fields because, on the one hand, they do not exist, or they are not sufficiently visible. I remain convinced that the status of criminology is intentionally disorientated, because there is a lot of work to be done on its preventive side. With a few very few exceptions, criminology remains the professional spring preferred by French-speaking specialists in particular.
The 2nd edition started from the need to expose some realities observed over time: 1. the path of criminology and criminological psychology in the world; 2. evidence-based in criminology and criminological psychology becomes and is a certainty, which can provide a clearer picture of some conceptual or professional realities; 3. The National Institute of Criminology is a paradox; 4. we do not have, except sporadically, a cognitive infrastructure and a critical-constructive vision in the judicial and criminal space; 5. the vast majority of NGOs in the field have only an apparent concern for the new and the "judicialization" of specialists' minds; 6. the teachers, in their vast majority - are often out of step with the current state of research and teach or guide their courses based on plagiarized or quasi-plagiarized works; 7. professional institutions in Romania have in the hiring/recruitment competition bibliography works of so-called specialists, who have plagiarized, below the current level of information; 8. the promotion in the INM curriculum of some pseudo-disciplines - scientific (see NLP), which would help to understand the mechanisms behind a courtroom; 9. the public approach, at the local level, of some false topics of interest at the national level, strictly with "local" specialists from the justice system: "women in justice" versus "men in justice"; 10. the simulated behavior in sexual offenses through the polygraph technique should be supervised by professionally honest experts, with experience and a positive character; 11. we the necessity of introducing the status of expert for determined periods (see the Canada model).
The novelties brought to this edition consist, in a first phase, in the reconfiguration of the contents. It is more organized, more disciplined, more mathematical, for the 21st century brain that wants to know, punctually, the details of X or Y subject of interest. One section does not depend on another, except to the extent that you want to read the entire content. But as time plays tricks on us, it is important to go directly to the content that interests you. In particular, the one related to the news regarding sexually motivated crimes resulting from some studies on the territory of our country.
In the general part, we have included four new sections: 1. Assertions and questions from the field of criminology and criminological psychology; 2. How to understand criminology in a post-communist capitalist-socialist society; 3. How to understand (and ally with) criminological psychology; 4. The multi‑, inter‑ and transdisciplinary character of criminology and criminological psychology, with the four dimensions: a) sociology of lying; b) psychoanalysis of lying; c) spirituality and lying; d) lying and ethics. I reconsidered that part of what I presented in the special part should rather be in the general part. For example: Love and sex on the threshold of psychopathology, Vocation and the pathology of freedom. Psycho-criminological prelude and Success through social-desired failure. Starting camp in psycho-criminology. Also, for the image of an authentic compendium on the matter in time, I decided to add - with the permission of the publisher - the text from "Despre minciuna. Social, psychoanalytic, spiritual, ethical, criminological-judicial reasons". Thus, the general part includes social reasons (with the exception of the psycho-social profile of the malignant lie, found in the special part), psychoanalytical, ethical and spiritual. The special part is completed, in this sense, with Lying and severe anxiety in a criminological/judicial/forensic context.
The special part is also segmented into 6 chapters. The only chapter that is in turn divided into 4 subchapters is the one related to personality disorders: conceptual clarifications, antisocial personality disorder/psychopathy/sociopathy, juvenile delinquency and simulated behavior/lying. Practically, we have offered a brighter and rarer panel of understanding of this fascinating field of the criminal phenomenon.
The special part begins with the chapter The psychodynamic model: psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychology, here including the latest news, in short, in the field of Romanian sexuality in terms of what men and women fantasize about. I continued with the chapter "Paraphilias/ deviant sexuality" in which I included the subchapter: 1. How do rapist sexual aggressors relate to sexual fantasies?. In the "Personality disorders" chapter, we considered the introduction of at least two novelties: 1. The psycho-social profile of the malignant lie, respectively 2. The investigation of simulated behavior through the polygraph technique in the investigation of the suspicion of rape on a 3- and 6-year-old child months. The next chapter is dedicated to psychopathology, which promises to be significantly improved in future editions. An essential chapter for such a manual is "Sexual crimes". Here I have included two pressing themes: 1. Rape (family/marital/partneral) – a scientifically proven reality (evidence-based) through the evaluation of sexual fantasies in the Romanian population and 2. A typology of Romanian rapist sexual aggressors. Scientifically validated study (evidence-based) in Romanian penitentiaries. In the last chapter, "Crime, criminal, criminality", the novelty element is cultural Criminology - this "Corpus Christi" of civilized society.
The citation in the text has also changed. In this edition, the citation rule is according to the latest regulations of the APA (American Psychological Association). Footnotes are intended to bring clarifications and clarifications regarding a theme or a treated subject.
