Editorial Reviews

Review

"This excellent book brings so much to the discourse on intimate partner violence and paves the way for more nuanced, theoretically-driven research, practice, and advocacy. The book is a must read for researchers in the field, and it also can serve as an essential guide for beginning scholars and graduate students on how to be critical consumers of domestic violence research. Overall, the book makes a significant contribution to the violence field." ―Journal of Marriage and Family

“This book makes several valuable contributions to the literature on domestic violence. . . . Johnson’s book is well written and engaging. It is highly recommended reading for undergraduates, graduate students, academics, and policy makers interested in creating prevention and intervention services for domestic violence.”―Gender and Society

“Michael Johnson presents a thought-provoking argument for why existing research on intimate partner violence conflates several different phenomena, thus failing to adequately understand the issue. By separating types of intimate partner violence into the three categories, intimate terrorism, violent resistance, and situational couple violence, Johnson argues that existing tensions in the research can be reconciled.”―Berkeley Journal of Gender, Law, and Justice

“Johnson’s compelling distinction between intimate terrorism, violent resistance, and situational couple violence has been the most influential of the typologies proposed in the past two decades. In this volume, Johnson lays the case for his thesis that the past forty years of domestic violence research have generated misleading and contradictory findings because researchers have failed to recognize distinctions between these types. The clarity and brevity of his argument and the liveliness of his style make this book an excellent choice for students and researchers who want to understand domestic violence typologies.”―Contemporary Sociology

Review

“Michael Johnson has written an astonishing volume on domestic violence. The theory is remarkably compelling, the research thorough, the application to advocacy directive. This book is the first to offer researchers and a broad array of practitioners a means to resolve a long-standing dispute that has baffled the field since its inception on the nature of domestic violence and its relation to gender. The book is essential reading and will undoubtedly set the research and policy agenda for the next decade.” (Robert M. Milardo, Editor, Journal of Family Theory and Review, and Professor of Family Relations, University of Maine)|“Michael Johnson has added complexity to our understanding of intimate partner violence in a clear and compelling voice. His typology challenges most of the truisms we have accepted and shines a path for more valid research and effective social policy. Everyone who cares about ending intimate partner violence should read this book.” (Kathleen J. Ferraro, Northern Arizona University)

It has been about 4 years since I read this book and to this day information I received from it still sticks out in my mind. The research and analysis are excellent sources, and yet it is written in a very comprehensive and understandable fashion.

Good way of categorizing social organization in relationships of families of origin and seeing how systems at the institutional level tie into the fabric of the domestic sphere.
