By Colin Wilson
From the bestselling writer of THE OUTSIDER
Colin Wilson, co-author of the bestselling ENCYCLOPEDIA OF homicide, has written a definitive quantity at the world's significant instances of violent homicide. In doing so, he lines the background of violence from its beginnings. From Sawney Bean and his cannibal kin to Ed Gein, the Wisconsin Necrophile, Wilson illustrates the "changing models of murder" and shows a few wish for the longer term.
