Relating rape and murder : narratives of sex, death and gender by Jane Monckton Smith Book 13 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide This book is about relating rape and murder in both senses of the term; that is the way rape and murder are linked and related and also how stories of rape and murder are related or told.
It is argued that a close relationship has evolved which allows them to share meaning and this dangerous linkage has serious repercussions. Drawing from narratives produced in police investigations, press reporting and entertainment media, and using both modern and historical case studies of sexualised murder, the author challenges us to contemplate the possible effects of a relationship which allows us to characterize murder of women as rape, and redefine the human fears of women as female sexual vulnerability.
The implications of the argument of this book are enormous, not only for the way police investigate violence against women, but for the way we construct human fears.

The author explores how stories of domestic homicide and love are told in the news, by the police, and in the courts, drawing from the reporting of 72 cases which happened in just one twelve month period. The findings make compelling reading and are important in understanding how we respond to domestic abuse and violence more generally, making clear the need to listen to victims more closely both before and after death. The book also includes a personal account of the aftermath of a double murder which was pivotal to the introduction of Domestic Homicide Reviews in the UK in April "--Provided by publisher.

Domestic abuse, homicide and gender : strategies for policy and practice by Jane Monckton Smith Book 10 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide A huge amount of energy and resources have been dedicated to domestic violence, yet the statistics on fatalities suggest that little has been achieved in terms of change. Based on research with frontline professionals and domestic abuse and homicide victims, this book seeks to tackle this problem head on, aligning the often opposing perspectives of victims and professionals.
The book argues that there are structural and societal reasons why she "doesn't just leave", or feels that "she loves him" which are rarely considered in the assessment of abused women. Professionals often cannot understand why victims don't leave their abusers or support prosecutions.
Similarly, victims are frequently frustrated by professionals who they feel want them to compromise their safety. This disconnection is the cause of many problems for victims.
