"As a good encyclopedia does, the Encyclopedia of Murder and Violent Crime brings together articles that offer diverse insights into the topic, while at the same time giving the reader a feel for its overall scope."
"Its 24 subject areas and over 200 entries present a tightly focused blend of categories present in other criminological reference tools, such as family violence and organized crime, along with newer headings on government sanctioned violence, legal response to violent crime, cyber-stalking, and ethnic cleansing....Libraries holding criminology reference works will find this a useful supplementary source. This work is recommended for college and university libraries."
"This carefully researched and excellently presented compendium will be a welcome addition to all libraries."
"These authors have demonstrated an impressive body of academic and applied scholarship from diverse disciplines . . . The result is a topnotch reference book that will serve the needs of teachers and researchers, graduate students, undergraduates, practitioners, consultants, true-crime buffs, and general readers who are intrigued by the material. In short, the Encyclopedia of Murder and Violent Crime is simply too handy, complete, and scholarly to pass up."
