Abstract My task today - that of conveying information about three understudied classes of offenses - compels me to speak to you without the quantitative cloak of social science with which I would prefer to dress this gruesome subject. Of necessity, I rely on case examples and fragments of research, because no quantitative data are available on most of the topics addressed here. My approach is to describe the elements common to these three classes of offense, to describe examples of each class, and to suggest the subtypes most often observed for each class.
