Softcover. With a special new chapter on the Jean Harris Case. Why do women kill? Whom do they kill? When battered and abused women fought back - and killed - men began to fear that this would become an epidemic. Some felt women were getting away with murder. But were they? They were not. In fact, in many cases their punishment was harsher than that of men. But this book is much more than a description of battered women who kill in self-defence. It is a social history and a fascinating story of women on the edge of society - women driven to kill for a multitude of reasons. Here are tales of crime and punishment that reveal hard truths about American society and women's place in it. With Notes and Index. 422pp. 8vo. softcover. From the library of true-crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Lightly browned pp. o/w Vg+ with no creasing to covers.
