Format: Paperback
I really found this book helpful and full of information. I used it for a class that I was taking called family violence and abuse. Wallace does an excellent job outlining indicators of child abuse and he also provides different catergories of abuse such as elder abuse and alternative life style abuse. I often find myself struggling to use books assigned to each class because sometimes they are just not useful. I have spent lots of money on class texts that I have not opened once. THIS WAS NOT THE CASE WITH THIS BOOK. IT WAS VERY USEFUL.

This book was for a Criminology class where the emphasis was of course on family violence seen from legal, medical, and social perspectives; but not limited in any capacity it delves into ritualistic, gay, and lesbian abuse. This book unveiled for me what family secrets are swept underneath the rug. For example, in a family they will know of a child molester so everyone stays away from Uncle Lester instead of turning him in, yet many times the aunt was touched or penetrated by him but her mother didn't believe her until it was too late. It also is enlightening about sibling abuse which steams a lot from them being molested and/or raped so they'll in turn do the same to a sibling since they are hurting. This book was very insightful and my professor really referenced it well.

This book is a good book. It helps teach the understandings of child abuse. This book is outdated though as many books now are due to the internet.
