This is the new edition of a two-volume reference prepared by Sifakis, a freelance writer and former crime reporter, who suggests that crimes, their perpetraters, and the victims reflect and reveal a multitude of societal conditions. The 2,000 alphabetically arranged entries cover significant crimes, criminals, and law enforcement figures and techniques. The entries, chosen based on their symbolic or historical relevance, consist of biographies, definitions, and detailed accounts of criminal activities. The volumes contain 150-plus b&w illustrations and photographs. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
