A Study of Criminal Homicide Offenders, Victims, And Circumstances
A non fiction book by R Barri Flowers
MURDER, AT THE END OF THE DAY AND NIGHT is a multifaceted probe of murder offenses, offenders, victims, and characteristics of homicide in American society. Within this context, the focus will be on examining the nature and causes of murder, the relationship between firearms and lethal violence, the criminal justice system and homicide offenders, different types of murders and murderers, antecedents and correlates to homicidal and violent behavior, and a theoretical basis for murder. The book is divided into six parts. Part I examines the dynamics of murder including its nature; guns, substance abuse, and murder; and murder offending and the criminal justice system. Part II explores domestic murder such as intimate homicide, infanticide, parricide, and other family involved homicides. Part III discusses interpersonal and societal murder crimes including workplace homicides, bias-motivated homicides, and terrorism and murder. Part IV focuses on youth and murder including youth gangs and homicide and school killings. Part V examines particular categories of killers including sexual killers, serial killers, mass murderers, and self-killers. Part VI explores theories on murder. Tables and figures accompany the text throughout the book to illustrate major points. A complete index is also provided for simple access to information and material found in the text. The text should be a useful resource for law enforcement professionals, criminal justice students, mental health experts, social workers, and those in the educational arena.
