Summary
"Domestic violence does not begin the day an adult heterosexual male decides to beat and batter an adult heterosexual female to oppress and dominate her. Domestic violence is a complicated and multifaceted enigma that includes child, sibling, spousal, intimate partner, and elder abuse. Despite billions of dollars spent addressing domestic violence, the number of victims killed by intimate partners remains the same. The problem can be traced back to our very definitions of victim and abuse. Until we open our eyes to the blatant empirical evidence and come to some agreement on basic platform, this pervasive crime will not diminish." "Domestic Violence: Intervention, Prevention, Policies, and Solutions presents a rational and reasoned perspective that emphasizes evidence-based information rather than ideologically held beliefs." "Injecting a voice of reason into a highly emotional debate, this volume clarifies our comforting and convenient delusions and allows us to re-appraise this sensitive issue and affect a positive and progressive outcome."--BOOK JACKET
