Description'Ayse Onal has done an immense service by revealing what it is like to live in an honour-based society and the terrible cost, not just to the women who are beaten and eventually killed, but to the perpetrators and other relatives' - Joan Smith. Honour killing persists across the Middle East, where regimes refrain from tackling primitive traditions for fear of sparking unrest. Ayse Onal interviewed imprisoned men in Turkey convicted of killing their mothers, sisters and daughters. The result is a revealing and ultimately tragic account of ruined lives - both the victims' and the killers' - in a country where state and religion conspire to hush up the killing of hundreds of women every year. It includes an introduction by Joan Smith.

Reviews for Honour Killing
this is my second book on honour killings and this book has enticed me to find other books to read. I was totally empathetic to the women and the men in this book it made me see that it is not entirelly on the killer in these situations, some were pushed by family but most of all by their culture, kudos to Ayse for being a brave frontier to get behind bars to tell their stories!!!! by Maureen Masuskapoe
