I wish I had read this earlier, but now I am glad that controlling behavior is finally being seen in a different light.

She is also involved in homicide case work, reviewing cases for the Home Office, and advising police and review panels on complex and high profile murders. I wish I had known this 15 years ago but feel excited and empowered to make a difference now with what I have learnt. honestly, this might be one of the only non-fiction books I would reread over and over again and it’s already one of my favourite books of the year. Occasionally Jane Monckton-Smith's writing appears to lose a little direction and clarity; the subject matter however, clearly speaks for itself!The author isn't trying to express emotions and has made an excellent effort to remove any bias on her behalf. It has also challenged me to question my own behaviour and that of others around encouraging friends into relationships.

In control’ provides an honest and detailed pathway through the homicide timeline, addressing the challenges that we face in recognising signs of coercive control.

I was intrigued to understand and read more about this from a level-headed, non-dramatised perspective. If you don't believe that feminism is still needed in this day and age, please, I urge you to read this book. In this book, Monckton-Smith shares a glimpse into a world of toxic masculinity and coercive control, one in which the tools are shame and fear, helped along by a media and justice system who are far from shedding sexist notions of men and women's roles in society.

So pleased that this superb body of work has been read by so many and starting to influence policing and policies.A former police officer and internationally renowned professor of public protection, she lectures on sexualised and fatal violence; works with families bereaved through homicide; and trains police and other professionals on how to best handle cases involving coercive control, domestic abuse and stalking. The clues are very often there in what the person says about themselves and maybe more importantly what other people say about them. Monckton-Smith has identified eight stages a coercive relationship will go through before it reaches critical and extremely dangerous levels. Reading real life interviews of these families make these women more than statistics and the murderous men who kill them to be seen as controlling rather than the victims.

It is something I would have hoped would be difficult to find information on (as if to believe it wasn’t so common). If they couldn't have what they wanted or felt they were entitled too then no one else would have it either. Chapter four describes ‘triggers’, which can be danger signs and may include circumstances when perpetrators are challenged, such as when reports of domestic abuse are made to the police.

I felt very strongly that there should be a way that men who exhibit these behaviours should be named so that women in their future can avoid them.Domestic homicide is a pandemic so pervasive that the soaring figures cause weary resignation rather than alarm. Otherwise, what else is nuclear weapons but the state equivalent of an individual stabbing someone 28 times and then turning themselves in?
