Softcover. Our culture believes that women are not naturally aggressive. And yet, every day evidence proves otherwise: women murder and beat up families, they join their lovers in torture and killings, they are psychopaths, terrorists and violent criminals. In this highly provocative book, the author demonstrates over and over again that the idea of female innocence is pure myth. She argues that feminists and society alike are to blame for refusing to see women as dangerous and destructive. Weaving the stories of violent women such as Myra Hindley, Rose West or the mother who smothered 8 of her children, with the findings of criminologists, anthropologists and psychiatrists, the author makes a compelling case for a new clear-eyed look at female violence and power. With Notes and Index. 288pp. trade size softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Sl. sunned o/w Vg+ with no creasing to covers.
