Carl Panzram : the Spirit of Hatred and Vengeance( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Carl Panzram was a lifelong criminal and hate-filled serial killer. A single act of kindness by prison guard Henry Lesser sparked a friendship that eventually influenced Panzram to write his gruesome autobiography. John Borowski deftly weaves reenactments of Panzram's own words, Lesser?s recollections and letters and expert analysis to take you into the mind of a psychopath. Panzram was abused as a child in the reform homes meant to help him, raped by hobos while train hopping as a young man, and endured prison life filled with extreme torture and corporal punishment. The expert interviewees analyze if Panzram is a product of his psychology or his environment. As the story unfolds they interpret the situations and highlight psychopath's tendencies such as the failure to take responsibility, the need to dominate others and the desire for as many people as possible to pay for their pain. The inclusion of a 45 minute interview of Henry Lesser by San Diego State University's Criminal Justice Program allows for further study and analysis
