Saqi are delighted to announce the publication of "Honour Killing: Stories of Men Who Killed." By Ayse Onal. At a time when tales of so-called honour killing are rarely out of the news, award-winning journalist Ayse Onal brings us a unique insight into the minds of the men who commit these acts. Based on one-to-one interviews with men convicted of the murder of family members, the harrowing stories in 'Honour Killing' shed new light on the motives and psychology of the perpetrators.


Ayse Onal is a journalist and writer of rare conviction and bravery, blacklisted by the Turkish government, threatened and harried by fundamentalists and even shot during an assassination attempt by the Turkish Mob, Onal continues to confront and expose taboos at the heart of her society, whatever the cost.


We would be delighted if you would consider featuring this book. Ayse Onal will be in the U.K. for a series of speaking engagements throughout May and is available for interview by arrangement.

The STOP HONORCIDE! campaign was launched on Mother's Day 2008. The goal of the campaign is to prosecute honorcides to the fullest extent of the law. We want honorcide to be classified as a hate crime and we advocate for every existing hate crime legislation to be amended to include honorcide.
