    Springer 2012; US$ 129.00

    ?Female offenders are often perceived as victims who commit crimes as a self-defense mechanism or as criminal deviants whose actions strayed from typical ‘womanly’ behavior.

  • Patriarchal Murders of Womenby Aysan Sev'er

    The Edwin Mellen Press 2012; US$ 179.95

    Most studies on honor killing look at it as an extension of Islamic beliefs. This book takes a different approach in that the concept does not arise from any religious text, but rather is a result of a community that is utterly patriarchal in its social orientation. The oppression of women is not mandated by any religion, but rather it is a result... more...

  • Profilersby Don Denevi; John H. Campbell

    Prometheus Books 2010; US$ 11.99
