This volume demonstrates the varied nature of homicide as well as the underlying patterns, risk factors, and epidemiology of homicidal behavior. The author presents her extensive studies on homicide in special populations, including women, children, and the elderly. Dr. Goetting effectively argues for a preventive, public health approach to this growing health threat. This book will be of special interest to educators, researchers, and policymakers in social services and public health, as well as students of sociology, criminology, and interpersonal violence.

Lists with This Book. I'd found an article by Ann Goetting that I enjoyed, and so I picked this book up from the library. I soon realized that the article I read had been re-purposed and was in this book, and for those interested every chapter in this book is an adapted article that was originally somewhere else (in journals). I really dislike when authors combine journal articles into a book and act like it is something new, as many of us have combed through journals.

Goetting, Ann. (1995). Homicide in Families and Other Special Populations. In this book, Goetting has brought together in one convenient volume nine of her previously published articles on homicide among family members. The nine chapters are arranged in six sections: female victims, homicidal women, females as victims and offenders, child victims, homicidal children, and elderly offenders. All of the articles are based on a data set of Detroit homicide records from 1982-83.

Data collected in the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS) between 2003 and 2007 are used to characterize victims, perpetrators, and caregiver roles, and circumstances that precipitated homicides by a caregiver.

The Other Population Crisis. While accepting that populations will continue to rise, they point out that this rise will not be nearly as steep or as long-lasting as was once feared. Section A. It is an unquestioned principle that has dominated international thinking for decades: we live in an overcrowded world teeming with billions of humans who are destined to suffocate our cities and squeeze our planet of its precious resources. Our species is inexorably wrecking Earth: flooding valleys, cutting down forests and destroying the habitats of animals and plants faster thanscientists can classify them.
