Is mass murder a historically new phenomenon that emerged in the 1960s? How has it changed over time? And what causes a person to commit multiple murders in a matter of hours or even minutes? This book explores these questions by examining 909 mass murders that took place in the United States between 1900 and 1999. By far the largest study on the topic to date, it begins with a look at the patterns and prevalence of mass murders by presenting rates from 1900–1999 and by describing the characteristics of mass killers. Placing the phenomenon within the broader social, political, and economic context of the twentieth century, the work examines the factors that have influenced trends in the prevalence of mass murder. It also discusses more than 100 case studies within three distinct periods of mass murder activity (1900–1939, 1940–1965, and 1966–1999) to illustrate more clearly the motives of mass murderers and the circumstances surrounding their crimes. The final chapters take a look at media coverage and the role it has played in the social construction of mass murder.

For the past three decades, many history professors have allowed their biases to distort the way America’s past is taught. These intellectuals have searched for instances of racism, sexism, and bigotry in our history while downplaying the greatness of America’s patriots and the achievements of “dead white men.” As a result, more emphasis is placed on Harriet Tubman than on George Washington; more about the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II than about D-Day or Iwo Jima; more on the dangers we faced from Joseph McCarthy than those we faced from Josef Stalin. A Patriot’s History of the United States corrects those doctrinaire biases. In this groundbreaking book, America’s discovery, founding, and development are reexamined with an appreciation for the elements of public virtue, personal liberty, and private property that make this nation uniquely successful. This book offers a long-overdue acknowledgment of America’s true and proud history.

Mass Murder in the Sky: The Bombing of Flight 629 is a 7,063 word historical true crime story about mass killer, Jack Gilbert Graham. It tells the shocking story of hatred, revenge, mass murder, terrorism, and a bizarre dynamite bomb Christmas gift that brought a plane down in the Colorado sky more than half a century ago, killing all forty-four passengers and crew, and the intense investigation that resulted in bringing the killer to justice. On November 1, 1955, United Air Lines Flight 629 took off from Denver, Colorado's Stapleton Airfield en route to Portland, Oregon. Eleven minutes into the flight, there was a tremendous explosion that ended the lives of everyone aboard the ill-fated airliner. A coordinated effort between law enforcement agencies, Civil Aeronautics Board investigators, and United Air Lines officials led to identifying the killer as Jack Graham, whose very own mother was aboard the plane and targeted to die. The truth is certainly far more frightening than fiction as this tale will attest to... Bonus material includes a complete tale on British serial killers, Ian Brady and Myra Hindley by R. Barri Flowers from his true crime anthology, SERIAL KILLER COUPLES: Bonded by Sexual Depravity, Abduction, and Murder; and excerpts from the author's bestselling true crime classic, THE SEX SLAVE MURDERS: The True Story of Serial Killers Gerald and Charlene Gallego.
