THE LUST TO KILL A Femininst Investigation of Sexual Murder
Cameron, Deborah & Fraser, Elizabeth
ISBN: 0814714080
New York University Press New York 1987 First Edition
 Hardcover From the dustjacket blurb - The Yorkshire Ripper, the Boston Strangler: these are the popular labels for a form of violence which is perpetrated overwhelmingly by men. This is the first systematic, critical analysis of sexual murder and its relation to the question of gender. The authors examine a wide range of literature which deals with sexual murder from criminology and the sociology of deviance to popular journalism and lurid paperbacks. While presenting the key ideas and assumptions of this literature in a clear and accessible way, they argue that these accounts fail to address the question of gender: the absence of women in the ranks of sex-killers is both taken for granted and obscured. They argue that this ignorance of gender cannot be dismissed as a trivial oversight. An account of sexual murder which does not address gender is not merely incomplete but systematically misleading. This highly original book succeeds in transforming the popular fascination with sexual murder into a powerful analysis of how the construction of sexuality in the West has eroticized violence, power and death. ; 220 x 140mm; xv, 207 pages Fine in Fine dust jacket
