For years, criminologists have studied the relationship between crime and below-average intelligence, concluding that offenders possess IQ scores 8-10 points below those of non-offenders. Little, however, is known about the criminal behavior of those with above-average IQ scores. This book provides some of the first empirical information about the self-reported crimes of people with genius-level IQ scores. Combining quantitative data from 72 different offenses with qualitative data from 44 follow-up interviews, this book describes the nature of high-IQ crime while shedding light on a population of offenders often ignored in research and sensationalized in media.

This book analyses the legal and aesthetic discourses that combine to shape the image of the criminal, and that image's contemporary endurance. The author traces the roots of contemporary ideas about criminality back to legal, philosophical and aesthetic concepts originating in the nineteenth century. Building on the ideas of Foucault and Walter Benjamin, Hutchings argues that the criminal, as constructed in places such as popular crime stories or the law of insanity, became an obsession which haunted nineteenth century thought.

In 18th-century continental Europe, penal law and what passed for justice were barbaric: gallows were a regular feature of the landscape, branding and mutilation were common, and there existed the ghastly spectacle of people being broken on the wheel. To make matters worse, offenders were often tortured or put to death for quite minor crimes and often without any semblance of a proper trial. Like a bombshell, a book entitled On Crimes and Punishments exploded onto the scene in 1764 with shattering effect. Its author was a young man from a privileged background, named Cesare Beccaria (1738-1794). A central message of that now classic work was that such punishments belonged to 'a war of nations against their citizens' and should be abolished. It was a cri de coeur for thorough reform of the law affecting penal law and punishments, and it swept across the continent of Europe like wildfire, being adopted by one ruler after another. It even crossed the Atlantic to the new United States, into the hands of President Thomas Jefferson. Civilized penal law remains a highly topical issue, and this book examines where it all began, with the influence of Cesare Beccaria.
