SIDELIGHTS:

William J. Rehder is a thirty-year veteran of the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). He teamed up with Gordon Dillow to write Where the Money Is: True Tales from the Bank Robbery Capital of the World. In this work Rehder and Dillow chronicle Los Angeles's modern-day bank robbers. Rehder illustrates every type of bank robbery and focuses on both professional and amateur robbers. In a review for STLtoday.com, Steve Weinberg observed, "Rehder must have kept copious notes about every bank robbery that came his way, because details he recounts are as fresh as if the cases occurred yesterday." Gilbert Taylor said "denizens of true-crime literature will relish Rehders' undertone of humorous contempt for the stupidity of criminals stymied by time locks, exploding die packs, and silent alarms."

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
