About this Item

Beige paper on boards, black cloth on spine. 408 pp. Volume has a trace of edgewear. Jacket is lightly edgeworn. Now in clear cover. From the Foreword: " . This book does not proceed in a straight line. It consists of a series of studies, mostly historical, approaching the subject of murder and women from different angles. They are intended to dispel some false notions and to examine the connections among women, society and killing. My aim has not been to get through the topic but to get at it. . I write mostly about prominent cases that obviously hit a social nerve, I recount some individual cases because they are historical landmarks, or representative of broad social concerns: and I discuss groups of cases that cluster about a single prominent issue, such as infanticide in the colonial era or women's self defense in our own. The story of women who kill is the story of women, and about the fear of those women who, finding rooms too narrow and the door locked, lie in wait or set the place afire.".
