About this title:

Synopsis: Attempts to understand serial murder tend to be focused on individual cases rather than the social context in which they occurred. This book departs from that approach, taking up the case of nineteenth-century serial killer Mary Ann Cotton and setting it in its full social context. Drawing from records of Cotton’s court appearances, local histories, and newspaper articles, it shows how institutions such as the family, economy, and religion shaped the environment she inhabited. While not denying the singularity of individuals who commit serial murder, the authors nonetheless make a powerful case for the influence and effects of society on their actions.

About the Author: Elizabeth Yardley is a reader in criminology and director of the Centre for Applied Criminology at Birmingham City University. David Wilson is professor of criminology at Birmingham City University and the founding director of the Centre for Applied Criminology.

Book Description Policy Press. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Female Serial Killers in Social Context: Criminological Institutionalism and the Case of Mary Ann Cotton, Elizabeth Yardley, David Wilson, To date, approaches to understanding serial murder have focused on individual cases rather than the social context in which they occurred. Written by leading criminologists and world experts on serial murder, this book marks a departure by situating nineteenth century serial killer Mary Ann Cotton within the broader social structure. Using archival records of her court appearances, local histories and newspaper articles, it uniquely explores how institutions such as the family, economy and religion shaped the environment she inhabited and her social integration through the roles of wife, mother, worker and criminal. Acknowledging that it takes a particular type of individual to commit serial murder, the book shows that it also takes a particular type of society to enable that murderer to go unseen. As the first work to analyse serial murder through the theoretical framework of institutional criminology and institutional anomie theory, it will equip criminologists with a methodological toolkit for performing institutional analysis.
