Title The Routine of Mass Murder in China
Published in Homicide Studies, Vol. 18, No. 1
Pages 83–104
DOI 10.1177/1088767913505092
Abstract Using data obtained from 165 mass murders in China, this research examines the crime of mass murder through a routine activities perspective as it relates to the location of where they occur (rural areas), while taking into consideration the motivation (revenge and profit), and most common weapon (knife) used. This adds to the literature on mass murders and routine activities theory from an area (China) where little academic research has been published regarding this crime.
