Publisher's Summary

Mass murders seem to happen every week now - from school shootings to bombings to people driving their cars into busy crowds. Why do they happen? Are violent video games to blame? Gun laws? The lack of affordable and accessible mental health care?

In this audiobook, we will examine each of the most well-known and most interesting mass murders in American history - including:

  • The Las Vegas shooting
  • The Aurora movie theater shooting
  • The Columbine High School shooting
  • The 9/11 hijackings
  • The Barnum & Bailey circus tent fire
  • The Bisbee cowboy hangings
  • The Starkweather homicides
  • The Manson family murders
  • And more!

We will also examine what can be done to stop mass murders in the future - from changing guns laws to improving mental healthcare.

Happy that i bought this book

With all of these events, and so many more coming to the surface every day, there is much for our nation to evaluate in the danger and murder flowing through our veins. This evaluation is something that I have been questioning, and it is great to hear this author's perspective on the situation.

nailed it!!

This is a collection of short briefs about the mass murders from the past through the present. Each account tells of the murderer and the events that took place. There is some very interesting information in this book. Serial killers are mostly men although there have been 2 woman mass murders here in this book. I found the information to be fascinating and was very intrigued with the presentation and the collection of the information going all the way back to the mid 1800s. If you find history of subjects like this interesting this is the book for you. Short and concise with great information and presentation. Recommend this one especially to students writing a report on mass murders or studying psychology.

Best One!

Mass Murders: A Brief History of Mass Murder in America by Daniel Brand was an intense book about just what it says – mass murders. Thus, it was not the most uplifting or happy book. Still, I did enjoy listening the history of it all as I found it a good way to be educated on American history. If you are sensitive to this type of subject, then this may not be the best, most enjoyable book for you, but if so, and you have that interest, you may also be interested in this book. The author explores famous mass murders in history, such as 9/11 and the Columbine shooting. Not only does the author talk about the events of these things, but he really takes the time to describe details and educate listeners about what happened. Further, he goes on to explain how we can alleviate and prevent such problems in the future. Overall, this is a good book for any person who is interested in the history of mass murders.

Very thought provoking book

Coming from the UK although we have had a few mass killings here but not on the levels the USA have had. This book is an interesting eye opener into the possible ways of stopping these things happening and could also take into account over here to stop anymore innocent lives being lost.

Amazing and beautiful book

It does make for very bleak listening, especially when there is a damning indictment of the state of mental healthcare in America. Many of these murderers asked for help and were let down; some of these crimes might have been avoided. Warning – incidences of such crimes are on the increase.

kudos to author!

I particularly liked reading about the motives the killers claimed and whether or not the perpetrator was certified insane. Many of these highly-published murders have never been solved.

This book is a detailed look at the history of mass murder in America. It is divided into chronological sections: 1800 – 1950; 1950 – 2000 and 2000 through 2017. Each mass murder is recounted in detail, which is absolutely fascinating.
