A forensic psychiatrist discusses myths and realities about murderers, murder patterns, and the insanity defense. Murder and Madness compares the myths and stereotypes we have about murder and its relationship to mental illness with the facts. The book describes the findings of Dr. Lunde's five year study of murder patterns and his detailed study of forty murderers, exploring such questions as: How does the United States' murder rate compare with that of other countries? Can stricter gun control lower the murder rate? Includes an Index.
