Item Description...
An updated survey of the history, methodology, and science of crime and criminal investigation provides behind-the-scenes, illustrated assessments of key events and crime types, sharing detailed studies of notorious serial killers, unsolved cases, and more.

Publishers Description
The Encyclopedia of Crime is an authoritative, wide-ranging history of the world's most famous crimes and criminals. In-depth portraits of true crime's most extraordinary characters are here, from serial rapists to glamorous gangsters, from ruthless killers to train robbers. Bonnie & Clyde, John Gotti, Al Capone, Ruth Ellis, Charles Manson, Jack the Ripper, the Krays - three specialist authors describe the stories that lie behind such infamous names.
Criminal activities and techniques - from safecracking to blackmail, from bodysnatching to cannibalism - are explored, revealing a range of weapons: lawnmowers, champagne, snakes, and even rolling pins. A thorough investigation of the science of crime is included, from footprints to genetic fingerprinting.
The development of methods to bring justice to convicted criminals are covered, including the guillotine, lethal injection, prison, and the electric chair. Throughout history, a lucky few always make the break, leaving as their legacy exciting tales of famous escapes, from Alcatraz or Dartmoor, San Quentin, or Aspen.

From The Book Jacket
Crime has been a subject of perennial fascination in our culture, but we rarely have the opportunity to survey the facts, history, and science of crime as distinct from the media coverage surrounding the major criminal cases that arrest the public's imagination. The Encyclopedia of Crime allows readers to survey the entire history and breadth of this phenomenon in an illustrated guide as compelling to read as it is useful as a reference.
