Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Domestic Violence: A Reference Handbook provides straightforward and objective coverage that considers all aspects of the issue through a careful combination of facts, statistics, case studies, and victims' stories.

This volume in ABC-CLIO's Contemporary World IssueS≪/b> series examines the causes and historical roots of domestic violence, providing the facts and analyses to foster a better understanding. The work analyzes the complex dynamics of domestic violence from three perspectives—legal, social, and psychological. This reference is an important source of information for those touched by domestic violence and for those seeking to understand it.

Book News Annotation:

McCue (women's studies, Portland State U., Oregon) has been working with women, children, and families in various capacities since 1972. She offers a text providing current knowledge about domestic violence: what it is, its causes, the extent of the problem, who is affected, how people are affected, available services, and some possible solutions. The second edition reflects the great increase in information about domestic violence through research and the Internet since publication of the first edition in 1995. The text has been revised and updated throughout, and includes a new chapter on problems, controversies, and solutions, and a new chapter providing a global perspective on the topic. Academic but accessible to the general reader. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

• Uses statistics and facts to demystify the issue

• Supplements and humanizes facts and statistics with case studies and victiM&Apos;s stories

• Analyzes key legal and social decisions dating back to the eighth century BCE

Synopsis:

• A chronology that stretches from 753 BCE, when Romulus, the founder of Rome, formalized the first "law of marriage" to January 2006, when President George W. Bush signed the third reauthorization of the 1994 Violence against Women Act

• Illustrations include the power and control wheel (a model in the form of a wheel that explains the dynamics of domestic violence), the ecological theory of battering, and the characteristics of the victim as illustrated by the World Health Organization

Synopsis:

This thoroughly revised second edition is an examination of domestic violence from social, legal, and historical perspectives.

Synopsis:

Domestic violence is a problem that often remains unseen, hidden behind the walls of the family home. Yet it occurs in all segments of societyin all economic, ethnic, cultural, and religious groups. Its psychological and sociological complexities make it hard to face and even harder to understand.

Rewritten grabber:

Domestic violence is a problem that often remains unseen, hidden behind the walls of the family home. Worldwide, at least one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused during her lifetime. In 2001, more than half a million American women were victims of nonfatal domestic violence. The psychological and sociological complexities of domestic violence make it hard to face and even harder to understand, yet it occurs in all segments of societyin all economic, ethnic, cultural, and religious groups.
