In this regard, dangerousness functioned as a metaphor (Arrigo, 1996) where the police and psychiatry amounted to "institutions intended to react to danger" (Foucault, 1990:188).
Absent proof that one was a threat to another, one could still be confined, institutionalized, as a danger to one's self (Arrigo, 1993: 7-27), As Arrigo and Williams conclude (1998:7): "Thus, any form of danger [became] justification for involuntary (criminal/civil) confinement.
Foucault's (1972) archeology of knowledge, particularly when applied to medicine, demonstrates how medical justice, "speaks a [certain) truth, exercises power accordingly-, and produces a disciplinary society in which people [a]re normalized and de-pathologized" because of their differences (Arrigo, 1993: 49, 135).
The chronicling of metaphors is an extension of my prior work on medicine, law, and crime (e.g., Arrigo, 1993, 1996).
This war, however, is a fight against that difference which disease signifies (e.g., the mentally ill, the physically disabled, the elderly) (Arrigo, 1996).
Following Foucault (1965, 1973, 1977), medical science is the avatar of truth and, as such, law defers to its pronouncements to advance the episteme of medical justice (Arrigo, 1996: 47-93).
2 There are a few isolated studies. especially including the work, of Szasz (1963, 1987) and Arrigo (1993, 1996), These projects. though, tend to focus on metaphors in psychiatric justice only. For an analysis of how the language of crime and medicine produces sustained trunscarcerative practices see Arrigo (1997).
3 Criminological scholarship has only recently explored this phenomenon. For additional theoretical analysis see Arrigo, 1995: 449-451: Arrigo and Bernard, 1997: 52-54.
For applications to psychiatric medicine and disordered criminal defendants see Arrigo, 1994.

In Association with
In his Introduction to Forensic Psychology, Prof. Arrigo affords in 12 chapters the main topics of psychology inside the law and the application of the law in his country.
As far as I can understand, many juridical situations need to be corrected, and the humanism of Prof. Arrigo is always present to explain and interpreted in such a way, that one can reach the conclusion that the wisdom is the only means to obtain good laws and their fair application. Other situations cannot be understood at all.
The hard work of Prof. Arrigo of introducing the study of the human mind (this is the meaning of the word "psychology") in the juridical system, with the aim of improving penal laws and procedures, and, at the same time, of assuring a right punishment to a criminal, finds some historical and social obstacles, that, in this moment, cannot be afforded.
The effort of Prof. Arrigo should be encouraged. His book represents the approach of psychology to crime and law, from the highest standpoint of a scholar who understood that the juridical system of his Country could be ameliorated.

Criminal Behavior : A Systems Approach by Bruce A. Arrigo (Prentice Hall)
Criminal behavior is vast and multifaceted. To be sure, academicians, practitioners, and policy analysts remain uncertain about what is and what is not within the scope of this subspecialty area. According to Bruce Arrigo, Professor of Crime, Law, and Society at The University of North Carolina-Charlotte with appointments in the Psychology Department, the Public Policy Program, and the Center for Applied and Professional Ethics, this is because the study of criminal behavior is evolving rapidly.
Dr. Arrigo has deftly covered in detail a broad swath of material, and his systems approach aids in developing the subject matter.
