This book analyses the conceptualization of psychopathic personality disorder for criminal/forensic populations and examines
in depth the emerging phenomenon of the 'corporate psychopath'. In doing so its authors expose the paradoxical nature of the
disorder: while it is frequently associated with antisocial, criminal and predatory behaviour, more recent studies have highlighted
examples of creative, visionary and inspiring leaders who are also found to present a high degree of psychopathy. They focus
on the nature, behaviours and consequences of psychopathy in executives and across the organization, offering an important
contribution to the emerging body of research on psychopathy and other problematic personality constructs in the workplace.
The book will appeal to scholars, students and professionals across the discipline, and particularly to those
working in workplace, forensic and personality psychology.
