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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[A] powerful work that combines the broader international picture with the personal stories of women... It's a brilliant light cast on a practice that claims the lives of at least 5000 women a year." * The Globe and Mail *
"What Husseini has done and continues to do in order to save the lives of innocent women who may be murdered by their families in so-called honor killings is truly commendable." * Multicultural Review *
