About the Book

Notable Reprobates examines the pathological phenomena of serial killing and mass murder. It provides detailed case studies of notorious multi-murderers Elizabeth Bathory, H. H. Holmes, Belle Gunness, Ted Bundy, and Joseph J. DeAngelo Jr. Chapter 6 explains DNA and other modern methods of crime detection. The final section deals with heinous political regimes that have resorted to serial mass murder as a matter of policy, including Stalinist Russia, Nazi Germany, Mao Zedong’s Red China, and Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge Movement in Cambodia. In the final analysis, criminal despots such as Stalin, Hitler, and Mao were exponentially worse for humanity than the likes of John Wayne Gacy, Charles Manson, and Jeffrey Dahmer.
