World Encyclopedia of 20th Century Murder


The World Encyclopedia of 20th Century Murder goes far beyond a staggering chronicle of slayings. More than a thousand murder entries (and more than 400 illustrations) will be found in this volume, representing all manner of slayers and all types of homicides, with varying degrees of motivation and method. From the lone, sensational jealousy killing of Stanford White in 1906 by Pittsburgh millionaire Harry K. Thaw, to the perverse slayings of British sex murderer John Christie and the latter day serial killer Ted Bundy, each case represents a different and, for the most part, unique story. In most instances, in-depth background information is provided, detailing childhood history, work, and marital experience and, most importantly, the social history of murderers who have shocked one generation after another with their crimes.
Within these hundreds of pages, the reader will discover all manner of killers — male and female, adult and child, and from all nations representing the rich and the poor, the comfortable and the desperate. International in scope, this volume seeks to explain, as much as the facts and intensive study will permit, the reasons behind the killing or killings that made headlines and impacted society. Often as not, the motivation remains unclear, sometimes utterly mystifying. In other slayings, the motivation is given through the killer's own confessions.
