Editorial Reviews


Renowned criminologist Walter S. DeKeseredy provides a comprehensive and compelling examination of violence against women in a jargon-free accessible format. He debunks myths, summarizes research findings, challenges backlash and misplaced assumptions about battering, answers common questions, and offers policy recommendations. A must-read for anyone who cares about stopping violence against women—students, practitioners, scholars, policymakers, and the public. (Susan L. Miller, University of Delaware)

DeKeseredy's brief but powerful book is a timely and accessible look at violence against women. One of the world's leading researchers in woman abuse, he tackles the complex issue in a straightforward and provocative manner, offering educators an important tool for engaging students and the public in discussions on the harms caused by, and the solutions to, this most urgent of social problems. (Janice Du Mont, Research Institute, Women's College Hospital, Toronto)
