“This is an ambitious book that has important implications for our theoretical understanding of the effects of criminal justice interventions on people arrested for domestic violence and for our evaluations of the practical utility of presumptive arrest and prosecution for violence.”—Kristin L. Anderson, Western Washington University
“I have been working in this general area for more than 30 years and have recently published a book focusing on the criminal justice response to abuse. But, I learned a considerable amount from this book and found myself underlining whole passages to think more about. So it is stimulating, not merely informative.”—Evan Stark, Rutgers University
