520 |a "Forbidden by all religions, suicide has nonetheless become such a practical problem that it is now an everyday concern, resulting in more annual deaths than homicide. Suicide must be seen as a societal and personal problem - it is a complex act with no simple explanation. The motivation is multifaceted, often not understood by the family or by other survivors. Suicide: Theory, Practice and Investigation is the only text available in paperback form that offers an accessible overview of suicide in the United States... this book examines the social problem and criminal justice concerns of suicide from unique perspectives. The authors discuss the various forms of suicide and analyze the latest data on regional differences and how gender, marital status, occupation, health, drug use, and religion all influence the practice of suicide. [It is] designed for undergraduate and graduate courses in departments of Criminology, Criminal Justice, Psychology, and Forensic Science. This book will also be of interest to anyone looking for a clear understanding of the extent of suicide in the United States."--Back cover.
