Inside the Minds of Mass Murderers
Why They KillBook - 2005
"Since the first recorded U.S. case of mass murder in 1949, massacres have been increasing each decade with workplace violence taking the lead as the most common form. The psychology of the killers, however, differs from that of spree, serial, or situational murderers. The red flags of a developing mass killer are obvious and predictable, Ramsland argues, and people who learn to recognize them may be able to defuse a potentially violent situation before it occurs. Using details from various cases, the author examines the different kinds of mass murders, from visionary to family to workplace, and the distinct psychological dynamics of the different types of murders. This book exposes the inner world of mass murderers and dismantles the stereotypes we hold about them."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
