New Arenas for Violence : Homicide in the American Workplace, Hardback Book

New Arenas for Violence : Homicide in the American Workplace Hardback


New Arenas for Violence examines the history, nature, and causal factors of occupational homicide-murder in the workplace-with a view to the development of a comprehensive understanding of the issue and the introduction of prevention measures designed to establish a safer work environment for the American worker.

Through the analysis of a number of actual incidents of homicide, the author constructs a new framework for understanding occupational homicide and its perpetrators.

Kelleher develops a new method of categorizing and evaluating crimes of this sort and offers an invaluable profile of the potentially violent worker or client.

The book concludes with a compendium of prevention methodologies that are both practical and applicable to a wide variety of workplace environments.
