In this book review I explore the published work of Frances Chaput Waksler entitled The New Orleans Sniper: A Phenomenological Case Study of Constituting the Other. The author examines how the second New Orleans sniper was constituted and then later unconstituted, while following the recommendations of Edmund Husserl’s on exploring the how, in a known situation, the Other was constituted; how people constitute an Other in a particular situation with the use of “their general procedures and resources,” where the existence of the Other is problematic (Waksler, 2012).
