Psychoanalysis Violence and Rage Type Murder Book Description :

What turns an apparently 'normal' individual into a killer? Many people who commit "rage type" murders have no history of violence.

Drawing broadly on psychological, criminological and psychoanalytic research the author outlines the clinical features of the act and explores the possible role that psychopathology and personality might play in the build up to mu...
