Description
Separating the facts, history, and science of crime from the media reportage surrounding major cases, this illustrated encyclopedia surveys a broad history of criminal acts. The entries range from the specific ("Peterson, Scott") to the general ("Hanging, a short history of"), covering crimes from the macabre ("Manson, Charles") to the bizarre ("Dolphins, sex with"). This revised edition offers controversial assessments of such cases such as the Australian baby dragged off by dingoes and the O.J. Simpson murders, together with startling evidence from unsolved crimes (including the deaths of Marilyn Monroe, John F. Kennedy, and Jimmy Hoffa) and studies of monstrous serial killers like Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and David Berkowitz.
