商品の説明

内容紹介

A comprehensive examination into the frightening history of serial homicide—including information on America’s most prolific serial killers.

In this unique book, Peter Vronsky documents the psychological, investigative, and cultural aspects of serial murder, beginning with its first recorded instance in Ancient Rome through fifteenth-century France on to such notorious contemporary cases as cannibal/necrophile Ed Kemper, Henry Lee Lucas, Ted Bundy, and the emergence of what he classifies as the “serial rampage killer” such as Andrew Cunanan.

Vronsky not only offers sound theories on what makes a serial killer but also makes concrete suggestions on how to survive an encounter with one—from recognizing verbal warning signs to physical confrontational resistance. Exhaustively researched with transcripts of interviews with killers, and featuring up-to-date information on the apprehension and conviction of the Green River killer and the Beltway Snipers, Vronsky’s one-of-a-kind book covers every conceivable aspect of an endlessly riveting true-crime phenomenon.

レビュー

“This formidably comprehensive, brilliantly researched book must be the most wide-ranging work on serial killers that has been written so far. The fact that it sprang from the author’s brief encounters with two serial killers lends it a sense of personal urgency.”—Colin Wilson, author of Killers Among Us and Written in Blood.
 
Serial Killers: The Method and Madness of Monsters is one of the most complete books I have read on serial killers. If you are fascinated by the human mind and by those who are abnormal, this is the book for you.”—Roundtable Reviews

安価なペーパーバック本で、紙質も悪い本なので、ほとんど期待せずに買って、読んだが、かなりまとまっていて良くできている。FBIの連続殺人分類ネタだけで、もたす類書が多い中、ホルムズやケッペルの比較的新しい研究や分類、それらの分類の具体的なケースの説明(ホルムズの分類に対応する連続殺人犯人がそれぞれあげられているのはこの本がはじめて)などがコンパクトにあげられている、ヒッキーなどの専門の研究者の本に比べても見劣りはしない。また女性の連続殺人などのトピックについてもふれられている。この手の本にありがちな、テッドバンディの紹介がちょっとくどいがそれ以外は合格点だ。

Serial Killers is divided into three parts: Part one covers the history of serial murder from its ancient roots to approximately the mid-1960s, when Vronsky argues it became viral in its postmodernity. Vronsky proposes that modern culture, media, and society degrade certain classes of people in the perception of homicidal psychopaths, who serially target and murder them in an attempt to satisfy increasingly addictive sexual, hedonistic fantasies. Vronsky points to the high proportion of street prostitutes, runaway youths, cruising homosexuals, or people who are homeless, impovershed, disabled, or elderly among serial killer victims; i.e., victims who are often characterized as society's "throwaways". Vronsky argues that only the presence of children and young college girls among preferred victims of serial killers raise concerns about these predators in society at large. He reviews several sources of statistical data on serial homicide, its patterns, and trends, particularly in the United States, and explores the myth of the recent “serial killer epidemic”.

Part 2 focuses on the psychopathology of serial killers, their evolution from child to adult, and the various emerging and evolving categories and profiles of serial offenders. Vronsky points out that law enforcement, psychologists, psychiatrists, and criminologists disagree among themselves as to how to categorize the broad range of offender types, and explores some of the different approaches, all illustrated with case study examples.

Part 3 focuses on the investigation of serial homicide, particularly on the various profiling systems from the FBI’s “crime scene analysis” profiling, to British law enforcement’s “psychological profiling”, and Canadian police development of “geographic profiling.” Vronsky explores the pros and cons of the various systems with case study examples of how profiling has both succeeded and failed in homicide investigations.

Serial Killers concludes with a chapter based on FBI studies and statements by serial killers and a few survivors of serial killer attacks as how to best survive an encounter with a serial killer.

You get all of this with an "easy" to read format.

Compared to other informational books on serial killers out for sale at present, this is one of the best I've read so far; Vronsky distinguishes the integral differences between types of killers--mass murderers, spree killers, &c.-- and informs the reader of the categorisations law enforcement agencies such as the FBI have used past to present(power assurance, power assertive, &c.) and their characteristics while introducing the reader to one or two killers that fit each category, filling in blanks along the way. It's not ridiculously comprehensive, in the sense that this is not an encyclopaedia but an overview, so if you're looking for an engaging introduction to serial killers this is the book. His writing is factual but conversational, not dry, like a textbook, or grating, like John Douglas's line of profiling books. He can write well, as well as relay factually correct information(incredibly refreshing, let me tell you). I highly recommend it, even if you've already made your way through a few 'overview on serial killers & profiling' type books.

A lot of reviews focused on the history covered by this book, but what I found most compelling was in fact the second half, which discussed the "formation" of a serial killer.

In the first half, the author goes back a few centuries to uncover gruesome truths of serial killers across Europe. With every chapter, he steps forward in time, narrating the lives and biographies of famous and not-so-famous killers, from Jack the Ripper to the Boston Strangler. Every page delivers a shock, as the lives and practices of the killers are revealed.

If you manage to survive through the photos in the center without passing out at the gore, you'll find the second half even more gripping. It explains how a serial killer develops, how his behavior differs from others in childhood, how he strikes his first victim, and the pattern that dictates his life from there on. There is plenty on the many types of killers and their various approaches to murder.

A fair portion near the end of the book is dedicated to criminal profiling and crime scene investigation. The book closes with a chilling chapter on how to survive if you find yourself at the mercy of a serial killer.

A very engaging read if you have the heart for the gruesome details!

I'm no expert in this area, but as far as I can tell, this is an extremely well-researched book. Peter Vronsky managed to keep the text very readable, even for those that aren't experts in this particular area. The book is a well-balanced blend that explores the topic from multiple angles so there is something for everyone. I recommend for anyone with a casual interest in understanding some of the most disturbed individuals around.
