Description: In assessing the concern that popular fears and stereotypes have exaggerated the actual scale of multiple homicides, Jenkins has produced an innovative synthesis of approaches to social problem construction that includes an historical and social-scientifi c estimate of the objective scale of serial murder; a rhetorical analysis of the construction of the phenomenom in public debate; and a cultural studies-oriented analysis of the portrayal of serial murder in contemporary media.
