Extreme Killing, Third Edition gives a comprehensive overview of multiple homicide, including both serial and mass murder.  James Alan Fox and Jack Levin are renowned experts and authors in the field and they bring their years of research to bear in this fascinating analysis of serial, multiple and mass murder. They examine the theories of criminal behavior and apply them to a multitude of mass and serial murderers from around the world, such as Adam Lanza (Newtown, CT), James Holmes (Aurora cinema), Anders Breivik (Oslo, Norway), Charles Manson ("Helter Skelter"), and Dennis Rader (BTK). This book involves the readers in the the commonalities and variations among multiple murders; addresses the characteristics of both killers and their victims; and, in the concluding chapter, discusses the special concerns of multiple murder victims and their survivors.

James Alan Fox is the Lipman Family Professor of Criminology, Law, and Public Policy at Northeastern University. He has written 18 books, including his newest, Violence and Security on Campus: From Preschool Through College. He has published dozens of journal and magazine articles, as well as hundreds of freelance columns in newspapers around the country, primarily in the areas of multiple murder, youth crime, school and campus violence, workplace violence, and capital punishment. He also writes an online column for the Boston Globe?s website. Fox often gives keynote talks and testimony before Congress and in court. He has briefed various leaders here and abroad, including President Clinton, Attorney General Reno, and Princess Anne of Great Britain.
