    Abstract

    Revitch and Schlesinger have set out to cover a broad topic, as the title alone suggests. They begin in Chapter 1 by defining gynocide as anger directed toward the mother but displaced onto another female, resulting in sexual homicide in the continuum of sexual aggression. They then develop the classification of catathymic and compulsive gynocide, each in its own chapter. Chapter 4 is devoted to psychodynamics, psychopathology, and differential diagnosis, while Chapter 5 is entitled Prognostic Considerations.
