Not to People Like Us: Hidden Abuse in Upscale Marriages Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

How is it possible for a highly educated woman with a career and resources of her own to stay in a marriage with an abusive husband? How can a man be considered a pillar of his community and regularly give his wife a black eye? The very nature of these questions proves how convinced we are that domestic violence is restricted to the lower classes. Now Susan Weitzman explores a heretofore overlooked population of battered wives-the upper-educated and upper-income women who rarely report abuse and remain trapped by their own silence.

Review:

"Written in a voice that is both compassionate and uncompromising, Not to People Like Us is sure to become the definitive work on the topic of upscale domestic abuse." Marcia Clark

Review:

"Weitzman provides excellent practical advice for [upscale abused] women to make choices that extricate them from abuse, and proposes a new language and better education regarding 'upscale violence' for the professionals who are likely to see it in their work." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

As seen on "2020," "48 Hours," "Sally Jesse Raphael," and in People magazine: A startling exposé of domestic violence against well-educated, well-to-do women, and a powerful indictment of the social service system that fails to protect them.
