The Third Edition of this comprehensive volume covers the current state of research, theory, prevention, and intervention regarding violence against women. The book’s 15 chapters are divided into three parts: theoretical and methodological issues in researching violence against women; types of violence against women; and, new to this edition, programs that work. Featuring new chapters, pedagogy, sections on controversies in the field, and autobiographical essays by leaders in grassroots anti-violence work, the Third Edition has been designed to encourage discussion and debate, to address issues of diversity and cultural contexts, and to examine inequalities of race and ethnicity, social class, physical ability, sexual orientation, and geographic location.
“The text is geared towards an approach to interdisciplinary undergraduate studies (human services, psychology, social work, criminal justice) and offers broad coverage of issues pertaining to violence against women. The authors leave no stones uncovered from creating awareness about research on victims to batterer interventions."
“I think it is important for students to view the issues beyond their life stories and see them through the view of practitioners, the courts, and law enforcement—this book does that!”
It seems to address everything I wanted to address within my course.
