This book describes various patterns of homicide that involve men killing women and other men. A qualitative study, it eschews heavy use of statistics to focus on case studies. Kenneth Polk then establishes the themes which run through four specific 'senarios' of violence. When Men Kill discusses the role of gender and class in homicide and raises a number of important policy issues. It will sharpen international understanding of homicide and the comprehensive classification scheme it develops will be of importance to criminologists everywhere.
