"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."--Jacket

From the bestselling author of THE OUTSIDER Serial killers are the headline-grabbing criminals of the modern world. But despite extensive police investigations, court trials, and news stories, a complete map of the serial-killer mindset has proven elusive. This fascinating study by one of the world's foremost popular criminologists lays bare the roots of a terrifying modern phenomenon. The term "serial killer" is still relatively new, coined by the FBI to describe those who murder repeatedly and obsessively, usually with a sexual motive. Who are these killers? What social and psychological pressures have produced them? Can we understand and learn to predict their behavior? Colin Wilson examines the changing face of murder over more than a century. Here are studies of some of the most infamous killers of our era, from Jack the Ripper to Jeffrey Dahmer, the monster of Milwaukee; Reginald Christie to Dennis Nilsen, who killed for company; the Boston Strangler to Donald Gaskins, who murdered more than 100 victims; as well as Richard Ramirez, the Night Stalker and many more
