Murder in the Name of HonoureBook - 2009
Rana Husseini's hard hitting and controversial examination of honour crimes is a fearless, groundbreaking account of a topic that can no longer be ignored. Claiming the lives of 5, 000 women every year, and common in many traditional societies around the world, as well as in migrant communities in Europe and the USA, these so-called 'Honour Killings' involve a 'punishment' often death or disfigurement carried out by a relative to restore the family's honour. Breaking through the conspiracy of silence surrounding this crime, the book includes the personals stories of many high profile cases that have recently hit the news. No other writer has taken such an unflinching look at one of the most brutal practices that still exists in the modern world.
