A MUST READ!!! Why Do They Kill?

Why Do They Kill

Why Do They Kill? Men Who Murder Their Intimate Partners by David Adams of Emerge is the first book that includes extensive interviews with men who killed their intimate partners. Moving backwards from the murders they committed through their adult lives, relationship histories, and childhoods, the author sought to understand what motivates the men to kill. Why Do They Kill is the first book to profile different types of wife killers, and to examine the courtship patterns of abusive men. The author shows that these murders are not, for the most part, “crimes of passion” but culminations of lifelong predisposing behaviors of the men who murder, and that many elements of their crimes are foretold by their past behavior in intimate relationships. Critical perspective on the men’s accounts comes from interviews with victims of attempted homicide (standing in for murder victims) who survived shootings, stabbings and strangulation.

Crossing the Threshold

A MUST READ –

Crossing the Threshold: Female Officers and Police-Perpetrated Domestic Violence

Order at http://www.abuseofpower.info/Resources01.htm.

Crossing the Threshold examines how male police officers’ institutional power filters down into their intimate relationships, and why the institution of policing has historically ignored or denied police-perpetrated violence against women. A brief look at the profession’s historical treatment of women and minorities provides the background for this analysis of police-perpetrated domestic violence. Though the book focuses on female officers’ experience of abuse at the hands of male officers and the institutional response to that abuse, the book is insightful and relevant reading for civilian victims, advocates, attorneys, police supervisors, administrators, chiefs and sheriffs.
