Product Description:

[ The Will to Kill: Making Sense of Senseless Murder (Revised) By ( Author ) Jun-2011 Paperback

From the Back Cover:

World-renowned experts Fox, Levin, and Quinet explore the general theory of power and control as a central and unifying thesis for understanding why people kill.

Each chapter explores a different sub-type of homicide and the circumstances in which people kill each other. Case studies in each chapter use recent well-known examples that are relevant to public policy. The authors discuss how politicians use high-profile cases to change the criminal law or to secure funding for programs and policies to reduce violence, and how these high-profile cases shape public opinion about homicide.

The Will to Kill, Second Edition, includes three new chapters:

  • Chapter 8, “Medical Murder,” examines homicides committed within health care settings.
  • Chapter 11, “Murderous Terror,” includes the tragic events of September 11th, 2001 and discusses issues of homegrown forms of terrorism.
  • Chapter 13, “Catching Killers,” reviews a wide variety of investigative approaches, especially DNA testing and behavioral profiling.
