Summary
Susan Smith - Victim or Murderer tackles the burning questions that grip everyone exposed to this news story: Why did she kill her own children? What was she thinking or feeling at the time of the crime? Was she psychotic - totally out of touch with reality? Did her own father's suicide twist her mind as she was growing up as a child herself? These and other questions are explored by Dr. George Rekers. Susan Smith - Victim or Murderer weaves psychological insight into the compelling mystery of why this seemingly caring mother would kill her own helpless little children. The story of the drowning of Michael and Alex by Susan Smith has gripped the nation like no other comparable case. A "murdering mother" demands much explaining. We expect every mother will instinctively care for and lovingly protect her dependent children. Susan Smith - Victim or Murderer tells the story of the crime that has captured the interest of the American people. Questions and issues about this case can be found in conversation across the United States. It is a story that will not go away. Dr. Rekers explores the facts and offers fascinating psychological explanations to help the public understand both the significant mental problems and the legal responsibilities for one's behavior
