Army of roses : inside the world of Palestinian women suicide bombers by Barbara Victor( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By presenting the intimate personal history of the first five female bombers who have succeeded in blowing themselves up, as well as the troubling stories of some of those who've tried and failed, the author reveals not only the crushing poverty and religious zealotry that one might suspect as motivating factors in their fall, but also a startling emotional component to their death wishes: their broken dreams and blighted inner lives. Victor shows, without dismissing or diminishing the horror of their actions, how far a person can be pushed when she is convinced she has nothing to lose."--Jacket

Getting away with murder : weapons for the war against domestic violence by Raoul Lionel Felder( Book )

5 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is a war being waged on women in America. Every eighteen seconds, somewhere in the United States, a woman is beaten by her husband or boyfriend. In 1994, nearly half the women murdered in America were killed by their spouse or lover. And these men will probably get a lighter sentence than they would have for assaulting or killing a stranger because their victims were once their lovers." "Raoul Felder, one of the best-known and most successful divorce lawyers in the country, has heard chilling stories of physical beatings and emotional tortures, stories that he might never have believed if he hadn't seen the evidence of this torment with his own eyes. Drawing from his years of experience, Felder and journalist Barbara Victor have delivered a riveting report from the front lines of this war, complete with a plan of attack that includes all the best weapons to fight back against this horror." "What these authors have done is talk to everyone involved with domestic violence from the cop who hates to take domestic dispute calls to the district attorney, judge, or social worker who feels that he can't offer the protection that a victim needs. Additionally, they have interviewed both the victim and the batterer to help us understand the forces that shape this relationship. From each of these, the authors let us hear what is needed to stop the violence now and make suggestions on how we can help change the law or the way things are done to keep it stopped in the future. In Getting Away with Murder you'll discover the first crucial steps that must be taken. Here, you will find the tools necessary to make a difference."--Jacket
