Summary
"This groundbreaking examination of murder among intimate partners considers domestic homicides in all their guises-not just those occurring between sexual partners but the killing of children, parents, and siblings as well. Unlike previous studies of domestic killings, which focus on statistical findings, the work illuminates the complex factors that motivate intimate-partner murders." "Drawing on extensive documentary sources and field research, Neil Websdale unearths the case histories of some three hundred homicides involving family members and frames them within their interpersonal, familial, situational, and cultural contexts. He explores the kinship systems of various cultural groups (African American, Latino, Caucasian, and Asian American), discusses types of social and gender oppression, and explores the nature of families who experience domestic homicide. He also examines how these murders are covered by the media and looks at social policy initiatives designed to reduce such incidents." "By exploring the cultural patterns and the intricate workings of power struggles revealed by these cases, Understanding Domestic Homicide expands our understanding of such disconcerting crimes.
