1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 164 libraries worldwide
"A compelling an remarkable history, spanning two thousand years of murder, from the 'games' of ancient times to modern-day cannibal killers. Following the original success of his history of homicide, the "Mammoth Book of True Crime 2," expert author Colin Wilson has prepared this new, completely revised edition, bringing the chronicle of this most dreadful of crimes right up to the present. He examines the motives and methods, both of particular categories of murder and of individual and mysterious cases. Starting with the horrifying entertainments of Ancient Rome, and moving on through the centuries, he illuminates such infamous figures as Vlad the Impaler, Ivan the Terrible, Gilles de Rais, the Countess Elizabeth Bathory and the Marquis de Sade. Elizabethan executions, Jacoben witch hunts, the gaslit Victorian underworld of Jack the Ripper, and the gangland killings of the Jazz Age lead us up to the serial killers of the modern world, among them Fred West, Chikatilo, Milat, and Jeffrey Dahmer, gruesome cannibal killers and random 'spree' gunmen, as well as the growing phenomenon of murder with an element of the occult. At the dawn of the second millennium, Colin Wilson offers a fascinating and often shocking view of humankind's violent history."--BOOK JACKET.
