Offering current research and reflections on violence against women, the new edition of this vital resource provides extensive coverage of the current state of research, theory, prevention, and intervention regarding violence against women. Each of the 18 chapters belongs to one of three parts: theoretical and methodological issues in researching violence against women, types of violence against women, or prevention and direct intervention. The editors and contributing authors have crafted their work to encourage discussion and debate and also to address issues of diversity and cultural contexts, as well as to examine inequalities of race and ethnicity, social class, physical ability, sexual orientation, and geographic location. Intended Audience: This volume is intended for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses in Violence Against Women, Family Violence (Domestic Violence, Intimate Violence, Interpersonal Violence), and Violent Crime.
