Editorial Reviews

A classic, early work that defined "the cycle of violence" and "learned helplessness" theories that are now debated by some in the field. Walker is best known for her "battered woman syndrome" defense of women who kill their abusers.
Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc.
