- Publisher's Summary:
Violence against women is a centuries old problem, but it is not until the past three decades that the topic has mushroomed in scholarly discussion. With this explosion of information there is a need for a comprehensive analysis of the complex theoretical, methodological, and ethical issues surrounding this topic. Editors Claire Renzetti, Jeffrey Edleson, and Raquel Kennedy Bergen fill this void in their book the Sourcebook on Violence Against Women. This handbook comprises a collection of original scholarly writings that extensively cover the current research on violence against women. In four sections the editors treat theoretical and methodological issues in research, types of violence, prevention and direct intervention, and continuing and emerging issues. As a comprehensive information source on violence against women, this book is an excellent resource for students, practitioners, and academics.
