Domestic Violence free pdf This thoroughly revised second edition is a thorough examination of domestic violence from social, legal, and historical perspectives. Domestic violence is a problem that often remains unseen, hidden behind the walls of the family home. Yet, it occurs in all segments of society - in all economic, ethnic, cultural, and religious groups. Its psychological and sociological complexities make it hard to face and even harder to understand. Rewritten grabber: Worldwide, at least one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused during her lifetime. In 2001, more than half a million American women were victims of nonfatal domestic violence. "Domestic Violence: A Reference Handbook" provides straightforward and objective coverage that considers all aspects of the issue through a careful combination of facts, statistics, case studies, and victims' stories. This volume in "ABC-CLIO's Contemporary World Issues" series examines the causes and historical roots of domestic violence, providing the facts and analyses to foster a better understanding. The work analyzes the complex dynamics of domestic violence from three perspectives - legal, social, and psychological. This reference is an important source of information for those touched by domestic violence and for those seeking to understand it.
