Author:Fluehr-Lobban, Carolyn

Sections of the paper: Ethnicity and homicide - The law of homicide in the Sudan - Profile of the sample of homicide cases - Sudanese homicide and major crime: analysis with reference to social systems and cultural values (Insult cases; Sex-related cases: Cases related to property) - Summary. Appendices; Ref.
