Home Truths about Domestic Violence: Feminist Influences on Policy and Practices - A Reader

by Jalna Hanmer and Catherine Itzin - £41.99  Taylor and Francis (Routledge) (2001)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780415241571 | ISBN 10: 041524157x

While men's violence to women is an everyday culturally supported activity, this reader demonstrates: that men's violence can be curtailed and that women and children can be assisted effectively; that state policies and provision can be improved; and that women can actively participate in the resolution of their difficulties.
 
Bringing together new work and key papers Home Truths About Domestic Violence provides a comprehensive overview and up-to-date account of the progress so far, and identifies what still needs to be done. Areas covered include:
 
* womens experience of violence
* childrens experience of violence
* personal experiences of the justice system
* state policies on violence in the US and UK
* educational programmes and initiatives.
 
This substantial Reader makes a significant contribution to the understanding of domestic violence from both a policy and a practice perspective.
 
Together with its companion volume Home Truths About Child Sexual Abuse it provides an in-depth resource for a wide range of teachers, students and professionals, highlighting the diverse and complex dimensions of the problem of domestic violence.
