exploring the structure and process in homicide situations
Author: Miethe, Terance D.
A study of homicide in the United States of America over the period 1970-1998. The authors investigate whether the situations of homicides have altered over the thirty years, and consider the theories of offender motivation and opportunity, violent sub-culture and rational choice. They proffer information on public policies and interventions and discuss issues of gender, class and race, weapon use and drug-relatedness. They offer suggestions for future research
