Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Drawing on three Canadian data sets from 1993, 1999, and 2004, Browning (family social sciences, U. of Manitoba) investigates populations of women that are particularly vulnerable to violent victimization from an intimate male partner. He has published preliminary reports before, but here is able to define vulnerable populations, identify these groups as such, argue for the importance of studying them, and show how the study of them fits within the field of family violence. He also explains his research methods and how they can be generalized to study vulnerable populations in general. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This essential reference develops a new sub-field on violence in vulnerable populations, with attendant approaches to theory and method.

Synopsis:

Violence Against Women: Vulnerable Populations investigates under-researched and underserved groups of women who are particularly vulnerable to violent victimization from an intimate male partner. In the past, there has been an understandable reluctance to address this issue to avoid stereotyping vulnerable groups of women. However, developments in the field, particularly intersectionality theory, which recognizes women's diversity in experiences of violence, suggest that the time has come to make the study of violence in vulnerable populations a new sub-field in the area. As the first book of its kind, Violence Against Women: Vulnerable Populations identifies where violence on vulnerable populations fits within the field, develops a method for studying vulnerable populations, and brings vital new knowledge to the field through the analysis of original data (from three large-scale representative surveys) on eight populations of women who are particularly vulnerable to violence.
