In the United States and Great Britain, 20-30% of all homicides involve the killing of a woman by a man, and it is far rarer when a woman is killed by another woman. Unfortunately, this is not a very well understood phenomenon. Most books on the topic discuss serial killings, but those only make up 2% of sexual murder-a sensationalist subset of a subset. There has never before been a comprehensive book that has covered the entire scope of homicide cases in which men murder women. Dobash and Dobash, two seasoned researchers and longtime collaborators in the study of violence against women, reveal in When Men Murder Women what they have learned from a three-year study, which examined and analyzed 866 homicide case files, as well as 200 in-depth interviews taken within prisons. When Men Murder Women offers guidelines for assessing and managing risk to women, and discusses various interventions for male offenders. The result is this essential book for students and researchers in the social sciences studying violence, gender, and crime.
