Arnon Edelsteinabout this book: As opposed to a "regular" murder in which one person murders another in a spontaneous and unplanned way, much more frightening, is the phenomenon of multiple-victims murder, either by taking the lives of several people at the same time, or the life of one person at a time in a pattern that repeats itself.
The multiple-victims murder has a high toll of victims and often creates significant anxiety in the public. Yet, the rate of finding the murderers in these cases is relatively very low, especially in serial murders, and the murderers are usually caught many years after the execution of the murders, if at all.
This book examines the various categories of mass murder and serial murder and suggests a new category: mass-serial murder. It presents and criticizes the most up-to-date research and theoretical literature in this field, and suggests an integrative theoretical model. It is intended for criminologists, psychologists and sociologists, as well as students and any reader who is interested in trying to understand the complicated aspects of this field of investigation.
