Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

""The editors' innovative ethnographic focus on front-line workers makes a significant contribution to the multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary field of gender-based violence studies."

--Madelaine Adelman, Arizona State University "Above all else, this work's greatest value will come from bringing together into one volume professional/applied and scholarly/theoretical currents that are too often unaware of, much less actively engaging, one another. The writing is approachable, the cases and analysis compelling, and the political commitment unmistakable."

--Sarah Hautzinger, author of Violence in the City of Women "This volume will appeal to scholars and practitioners who write and teach about gender-based violence."

--Mindie Lazarus-Black, Temple University, author of Everyday Harm

Synopsis:

The inside stories of workers struggling to counter violence

Synopsis:

Anthropology at the Front Lines of Gender-Based Violence is a broad and accessible volume, with a truly global approach to understanding the lives of front-line workers in women's shelters, anti-violence organizations, and outreach groups. Often written from a first-person perspective, these essays examine government workers, volunteers, and nongovernmental organization employees to present a vital picture of practical approaches to combating gender-based violence.
