Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When we think of serial killing, we tend to think of it as a perversion of contemporary society. The Human Predator makes an eye-opening case for the existence of serial killers throughout timeandmdash;the motives and methods, the societies that spawned them, and the historical periods in which they lived . . . and killed.

From Ancient Rome and the Dark Ages to the open roads of America, from the exploits of French religious zealot Gilles de Rais to such high-profile monsters as Jeffrey Dahmer and Aileen Wuornos, Katherine Ramsland offers a complete chronological record of the serial-killer phenomenonandmdash;and the parallel development of psychology, forensic science, and FBI profiling in the serial killerandrsquo;s evolving manifestation throughout human history.
