Do you recognize these names: Susan Smith, Theodore Kaczynski, Erik and Lyle Menendez, Andrew Cunanan, Buford Furrow, Louise Woodward, Eric Harris, and Dylan Klebold? They are all high-profile killers who have committed unspeakable horrors that Americans struggle to understand. Criminologists James Alan Fox and Jack Levin, renowned for their work in serial killing and mass murder, now expand their analytic eye to a wider range of senseless atrocities -- to these infamous murderers of our day and dozens more. In The Will to Kill, Fox and Levin help to make sense of some of the most horrific and extraordinary acts of family annihilation, juvenile killing, workplace massacre, serial murder, hate homicide, and cult-killing, combining hard facts and sound reasoning to develop their profiles and explanations. Though unusual even in the field of homicide, these bizarre forms of mayhem are vitally important for social scientists and informed citizens to understand, precisely because of the inordinate attention they receive. As the authors point out, "These are, after all, the murder cases that have typically made the headlines and the eleven o'clock news; they are the examples that politicians refer to when they seek to change some aspect of criminal law or to secure funding for programs and policies to reduce violence. These are also the murder cases on which public opinion about homicide is often based."
