SUMMARY

Domestic Crime focuses on the type of crime that affects more people than any other -- whether it be violence in the home (both physical and psychological) or damage to property. Using true cases as examples, it describes the variety of criminal behaviors that police and criminologists label as domestic crime: angry men turning on their families and lovers; abandoned women taking bloody revenge on former partners; a neighbor who was a minor nuisance is transformed into a deadly, threatening menace; a child is abused at home, and then killed. Local gangs can be nothing more than neighborhood pests with their petty thefts and vandalism, but when things get rough and someone dies, childhood pranks turn to murder. Domestic Crime demonstrates that the high level of crime committed in the home, usually by people close to their victims, is not a feature of modern life in just a few countries, but has been a worldwide problem from the beginning of time. It looks, too, at the way societies are trying to redeem the situation: rehabilitation programs for offenders, as well as projects to help children avoid copying the criminal behaviors they learned growing up in homes where life was not so sweet.
