Reflections On The Celebration Of ViolenceLarge Print - 2011
The man who revolutionized the way we think about baseball now examines our cultural obsession with murder - delivering a unique, engrossing, brilliant history of tabloid crime in America. Celebrated writer and contrarian Bill James has voraciously read true crime throughout his life. Now he takes readers on an epic journey from Lizzie Borden to the Lindbergh baby, from the Black Dahlia to O. J. Simpson, explaining how crimes have been committed, investigated, prosecuted and written about, and how that has profoundly influenced our culture over the last few centuries - even if we haven't always taken notice.
