“A gunman is loose on the campus.” That is what an e-mail sent to thousands of Virginia Tech students read. However, none of them could have imagined the horror that was unfolding as they locked themselves in their classrooms and dorm rooms. Seung-Hui Cho, a troubled senior, heavily armed himself and shot thirty-two students and professors before killing himself. In MASSACRE AT VIRGINIA TECH, Richard Worth tries to make sense of this tragedy, honors the fallen victims, and highlights the debates over gun control and mental health that were sparked by the worst shooting rampage in American history.
