It examines the most serious form of violence - lethal violence or criminal homicide, which is the intentional, malicious killing of one human being by another. The book synthesizes and organizes some of the best research and thinking on murder, produced by a number of eminent scholars from a variety of disciplines. The book is designed for use in courses in criminology, sociology, criminal justice, public affairs, law, psychology, and other disciplines that address violence, crime control, and the administration of justice, as well as in criminal investigation training. Murder can be used as a primary or supplementary set of readings in a variety of classes on deviant behavior, crime, violence, homicide investigation, crime control policy, abnormal psychology, general forensics, law enforcement, criminal justice or homicide. Each of the readings included in Murder have undergone editing to make them more accessible to students, particularly those who may not be familiar with the substance of criminology or the methodological and statistical procedures used in some research.
