A collaboration between a published researcher on serial violence and an experienced clinical psychiatrist, this book examines violence from the perspective of clinical medicine and psychology and helps to identify and effectively deal with the potential suicidal mass murderer before he kills. The authors review underlying causes, medical and social considerations, and the types of intervention possible. They begin with an overview of violence and aggression, move into the epidemiology of mass murder, and address the prevention of campus and workplace violence. Case studies of the most sensational suicidal mass murderers include Virginia Tech, Columbine, the Luby?s massacre, Laurie Dann, and other notorious cases.
