Book Description

October 7, 2004 0534633161 978-0534633165 1
A groundbreaking book that has grown out of over 30 years of research, HURTING THE ONE YOU LOVE provides an overview of theory and research on all forms of violence in intimate relationships including violence in dating relationships and marriages, incest, rape and sexual victimization, date rape, stalking, child abuse and sexual harassment. HURTING THE ONE YOU LOVE also explores how violence affects the family and others who are close to the victim, and uses criminal justice data and research as well as the research of psychologists in studying these phenomena. In addition, the text covers rape and violence prevention efforts, as well as educational programs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expert info, readable December 9, 2004
By Judith
This straight-forward book presents all the latest information on family/domestic violence. Although the book is based on the latest research studies, it is readable and accessible not only to psychologists and health workers, but to all those who might have been touched by family violence.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great to use as a text March 2, 2005
I used this book as a text in my Gender and Aggression seminar. It would work well in any Women's Studies or Psychology class that addresses interpersonal violence. The students found it very readable. The research cited is up to date and the research findings are presented in a framework that makes them interesting and interpretable. Frieze addresses interpersonal violence as a personal and a societal problem.
