About this title


From serial murderers to parents who kill, Fatal Violence: Case Studies and Analysis of Emerging Forms provides an insider’s look at a phenomenon that has existed since the dawn of man and cuts across social/economic barriers and cultures. Offering a rare glimpse into the minds of predators and containing chilling details of motives and methods, this volume explores gang violence, serial and mass murderers, filicide, rape, workplace violence, school shootings, and hate crimes. It also delves into the unusual and shocking practices of vampirism and cannibalism.

Bringing wisdom from years of studying killers and trying to understand the motives behind why these individuals do what they do, the authors present information that has previously gone uncovered or merely speculated upon. This fascinating volume includes:

  • Historical accounts of bizarre killers dating back to the 15th century
  • Psychological analyses of how a killer’s upbringing might have contributed to his or her actions
  • Criminal profiling theories in unsolved murders
  • Interviews with killers
  • Clues that suggest a person may engage in workplace violence
  • Myths about school shootings
  • Membership requirements for gangs and hate groups
  • Cultural factors that might incite youth violence

Steeped in research, the book contains tables with demographic data and events, discussion questions to provoke further inquiry, and numerous references for further study, making it a compelling resource for professionals and academia alike.

About the Author:
