Vom Verlag: Crime has become a subject of perennial fascination in our culture, but we rarely have the opportunity to survey the facts, history, and science of crime as distinct from the media coverage surrounding the major criminal cases that arrest the public's imagination. The Encyclopedia of Crime allows readers to survey the entire history and breadth of this phenomena in an illustrated guide as compelling to read as it is useful as a reference. This authoritative volume, with entries that range from the specific ("Peterson, Scott"), to the general, ("Hanging, a short history of"), covering all manners of crimes from the macabre ("Manson, Charles") to the bizarre ("Dolphins, Sex with").
The authors offer controversial new assessments of major cases such as the Peterson case, the "Dingo" baby, and O.J. Simpson, together with startling new evidence from unsolved crimes--the deaths of Monroe, Kennedy, and Jimmy Hoffa--and penetrating studies of monstrous killers including Bundy, Dahmer, and Berkowitz. Stark light is also shed on some of crime's biggest enigmas, with entries that answer questions like "What is the best way to crack a safe?" and "How do lethal injections work?"
