520    This book questions gendered readings of violence by 
       analyzing how this paradigm has become normalized in Italy
       since the feminist term 'femminicidio', or 'femicide', 
       entered the mainstream media during the 2013 general 
       election. It also sheds light on discourses of 
       contestation on the part of family activists, men's rights
       campaigners and divorced fathers' groups. Two counter-
       discourses emerge. The first is what the author terms an 
       'ideology narrative', for which discourses built around 
       the conceptual category of 'gender' normalize simplistic 
       representations of relationships between men and women. 
       The second is a 'female violence discourse', which sheds 
       light on under-represented aggressor-victim relations and 
       modifies dominant representations of femininity and 
       masculinity. The author argues that integrating these two 
       discourses into public debates helps to reappropriate the 
       complexity and biological dimensions of (violent) 
       relationships between men and women, often overshadowed by
       gender/feminist perspectives. In this way, she concludes, 
       we can address neglected social issues that contribute to 
       violence beyond gender. This thought-provoking book will 
       appeal to students and scholars of sociology, critical 
       discourse studies and gender
