Killing the Competition: Economic Inequality and Homicide by Martin Daly

Criminologists have known for decades that income inequality is the best predictor of the local homicide rate, but why this is so has eluded them. There is a simple, compelling answer: most homicides are the dénouements of competitive interactions between men. Killing the Competition is about this relationship between economic inequality and lethal interpersonal violence. The author applies basic principles of behavioral biology to explain why killers are usually men, not women, and counters the view that attitudes and values prevailing in “cultures of violence” make change impossible.
