Overview

Used as a teaching tool in universities and by law enforcement personnel, Hickey's (criminology, California State U., Fresno) text assists readers in understanding the nature of violence, criminal personalities, and victim-offender relationships, and in understanding serial murder within the contemporary social context. The fourth edition is updated with new research and new profiles—including materials on the Green River Killer in Seattle, Washington; an expanded treatment of both emerging theory and compelling policy questions; a broader cultural perspective through the inclusion of a new chapter on multiple homicides in Japan and in South Africa; and new sections on homosexual serial murders and on serial murder among African Americans, as both victims and offenders.
