Summary
Crime of the century was a catchery often used throughout the 20th century. Crimes that fascinated, haunted and reviled us, crimes that transcended national boundaries and became iconic signposts in time, often earned the epitaph crime of the century . This book presents and overview of crimes committed since 1901 that will be long remembered because of their historical, social and cultural impact, including: * The St Valentine Day's Massacre (1929) * The Lindbergh Kidnapping (1932) * The Unabomber (1996) *9/11 (2001) * The Green River Killer (2001) * The Beslan School Siege (2003). Themes reappear decade after decade: political assassination, acts of espionage and terrorism, crimes of passion, kidnapping, theft, underworld murders, sex crimes and society scandals. Crimes of the Century is a fascinating and thought provoking book, covering the facts of each case and catering to the minds of those curious to learn more about the crimes that have shaped the world."
