Richard Tithecott, James R. Kincaid:

Of Men and Monsters: Jeffrey Dahmer and the Construction: Jeffrey Dahmer and the Construction of the Serial Killer - Paperback

ISBN: 0299156842

[SR: 32839], Taschenbuch, [EAN: 9780299156848], Univ of Wisconsin Pr, Univ of Wisconsin Pr, Book, [PU: Univ of Wisconsin Pr], Univ of Wisconsin Pr, Of Men and Monsters "Of Men and Monsters" examines the serial killer as an American cultural icon, one that both attracts and repels. Richard Tithecott suggests that the stories we tell and the images we conjure of serial killers--real and fictional--reveal as much about mainstream culture and its values, desires, and anxieties as they do about the killers themselves. Full description, "This is a book, not about what makes the serial killer tick, but about those of us--all of us--who have wound the clock and need to keep it running." These words by historian James Kincaid, in the foreword to Of Men and Monsters, introduce the idea, explored in depth by author Richard Tithecott, that we construct the phenomenon of serial killing. We also construct ourselves, he says, as audience to that spectacle. The killer himself responds to that audience, in a classic loop of the observer affecting the observed. It is a postmodern view, of course, to say that society, and its designated representatives such as FBI serial-killer experts, actually collude in the actions of a "monster" like Jeffrey Dahmer. Tithecott draws on the ideas of French philosopher Michel Foucault to explain and illustrate this view, using prose that is heavy going in places, but still quite readable.

Tithecott, Richard

Title:

Of Men and Monsters: Jeffrey Dahmer and the Construction

ISBN:

9780299156848

A text which explores the serial killer as an American cultural icon. Tithecott considers the ways in which the American media has dealt with examples of real and fictional serial killers, and argues that the serial killer we construct for ourselves is a figure both repulsive and attractive who fulfils dreams of masculinity, purity, and violence.
