Homicide | Sociology of Deviance | Violent Crime (General)
A great resource for students.
This is a special topics course with students from various disciplines. Another textbook is more straightforward for students who do not have a criminology or criminal justice background.
The book was interesting, but repetitive. I did not like the profile section because there was no feedback about the accuracy or inaccuracy of the profiles.
I cite this book in my criminology course. I also highly encourage each student to obtain this book and read it. It is recommended reading.
