Product Description:

Ever since Oedipus unwittingly killed his father and married his mother in Sophocles' play parricide - the killing of a parent or another close relative - has been a dominant motif in works of literature film psychoanalytic theory and criminology. Yet parricide for much of the twentieth and twenty-first century has been framed as an adolescent phenomenon with child abuse proffered as the overriding cause related to the killing of parents. Respect Defense and Self-Identity provides a new way of understanding parricides by analyzing the behavior of offenders and victims at the scene of the crime in relation to the sources of conflict. This book examines the conflict between parents and their offspring across the life course and argues that parricides are shaped by factors such as respect defense and self-identity. Respect Defense and Self-Identity is recommended for classroom use in courses such as criminology homicide family violence and social work.
