Summary
"Endangered Children: Neonaticide, Infanticide, and Filicide provides a psychological, sociological, and criminological perspectives of these acts, as the authors answer the many questions that arise from these crimes." "With an emphasis on neonaticide in terms of motives, alternatives, defenses offered, and penalties imposed, this book will be of interest to everyone from social workers to attorneys. A secondary area of focus is infanticide and filicide, again with attention paid to motives, defenses, and legal outcomes. Particular attention is paid to psychological/psychiatric defenses that have been offered and their impact as reported in law review articles and elsewhere." "This text will examine the mothers of the victims in terms of background and motives along with the role, if any, mental illness plays in the deaths of their children."--Jacket
