"One of the major achievements of social science in the past 25 years is the increased understanding of the causes and consequences of family violence. However, students are likely to experience this accumulated body of knowledge as an impenetrable thicket of statistics and theories. Hines and Malley-Morrison’s book cuts through the thicket. It is both scientifically accurate and readable. Throughout the book there are challenging questions to help students move from passive reading to intellectual engagement. Moreover, they combine scientific integrity with compassion for victims and attention to ways to end this ancient scourge."(Murray A. Straus 2004-08-23)
