Order of Assassins: The Psychology of Murder by Colin Wilson

From the bestselling author of THE OUTSIDER

"I can think of no other writer who relates a case-history so lucidly...

Colin Wilson puts the Manson murders in coldly sharp perspective."-EVENING STANDARD

Why is the "motiveless" murder an increasing phenomenon today? What is the mentality behind the Manson massacres and other shocking cases of brutal killing-too frequent to be written off as isolated cases? In his penetrating exploration of murder, Colin Wilson suggests that the apparently meaningless violence so frighteningly prevalent today is the result of boredom and frustration induced by a repressive society. Particular individuals of high creative potential are thwarted in their natural drives and ambitions and are forced to tread the deadly path of homicide. Colin Wilson traces this path, describing in detail many instances of violent crime, and provides valuable insights that may point to an explanation.
