New Book: Homicide

A new book by Wayne Petherick and Natasha Peterick, titled Homicide, examines the incidence and prevalence of homicide in major western nations. It covers the biological, psychological, and social roots of homicide from genetic and evolutionary perspectives, but also considering emotions and influence of peers.

Different types of homicide are discussed, with final chapters covering tactics for investigation and homicide prevention. Students and instructors in the areas of forensic science, sociology, criminology, psychology, psychiatry, justice, and criminal justice at the university level will find this book to be a comprehensive resource—as well as those who research homicide and related topics.
