Violence, including intimate partner violence, is a leading cause of death, disability, and hospitalization in the United States and other regions worldwide. Despite growing awareness, the numbers of reported and unreported incidents continue to rise. Drawing on the contributions of criminal justice practitioners and academic theorists who bring sober insight to a highly charged issue, The War Against Domestic Violence offers a comprehensive, interdisciplinary study of this phenomenon. Topics include: Domestic violence in Caucasian, Latino, African-American, Asian, Native American, and Sub-Saharan African cultures Child abuse and the response of child welfare agencies The connection between domestic violence and homelessness and drug abuse Domestic violence in gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons Spousal violence among police officers The history of domestic violence policy Orders of protection Prosecuting and defending those charged with domestic violence Court-ordered treatment and community supervision of domestic violence offenders Creating campaigns for domestic violence prevention The book provides rare glimpses of topics inadequately covered in the literature, allowing readers to understand and appreciate the complexity of domestic violence while also promoting a variety of effective strategies to combat its continued rise. The multi-layered approach of this volume and the input from the expert contributors from varied backgrounds are destined to stimulate the interest of a growing and diverse audience. Lee Ross recently appeared on UCF Profiles to discuss why some break the law and others with similar backgrounds do not.

Following in the tradition of the first edition, this book devotes considerable attention to the experiences and perspectives of criminal and social justice practitioners alongside researchers, child welfare workers, and other renowned scholars across disciplines.

Tierra A. Kendrick, a Commissioned Officer in the United States Army, is a Memphis, Tennessee, native who graduated from Middle Tennessee State University. Her life experiences along with her passion for world progression and the well-being of others has led to her growth in advocating for education and human rights. As an initiative of the International Sexual Assault & Domestic Violence Prevention Campaign (ISADVPC), and in collaboration with Kendrick-Reid Media, Ms. Kendrick takes a simple, proactive approach to educate boys and young men about what acts under the law, constitute sexual assault and domestic violence. Likely the first book that attempts to reprogram boys and young men between the ages of 12-24 about the perils and consequences of sexual assault and domestic violence, she has collaborated with ISADVPC to teach them the dangers of noncompliance. #TeachOurBoys is an investment for every parent to be proactive in circumventing their sons' involvement in sexual assault and domestic violence. After reading this book, they will know that there are consequences for every action. For instance, they will learn how having sex with a female who has been drinking is a form of sexual assault because she is unable to give consent while under the influence. They will also learn such things as to how the serious offense of sexting (receiving or being in possession of sexually-explicit photos of anyone under the age of 18) constitutes child pornography. Simply put, this book is a must-read for all males, parents, pastors, and school officials who would like to share life-changing truths with their sons.

The historical context of family violence is explored, as well as the various forms of violence, their prevalence in specific stages of life, and responses to it made by the criminal justice system and other agencies. The linkage among child abuse, partner violence and elder abuse is scrutinized, and the usefulness of the life-course approach is couched in terms of its potential effect on policy implications; research methods that recognize the importance of life stages, trajectories, and transitions; and crime causation theories that can be enhanced by it. Tables, figures, charts, discussion questions and helpful boxes with supplemental information titled "Tool Box," "From the Field," and "Research Shows" enhance the text.

Based on large research material collected in Hungary, Macedonia, Serbia and Bulgaria Social change, Gender and Violence is the book which explores the impact of transition from communism and war on everyday life of women and men, as well as the way how everyday life and gender related changes affect women's vulnerability to domestic violence and trafficking in women. The book also explores the impact of micro level changes on development of civil society, women's movement, and legal and policy changes regarding violence against women. This is a unique book, which tries to look at violence against women as connected to oppression of both women and men. It argues that violence against women in post-communist and war affected societies is significantly connected to the increase of social stratification, economic hardship, unemployment, instability, uncertainty and related social stresses, changes in gender identity and structural inequalities brought by new world order. Using largely accounts of more than hundred interviewed people, the author shows vividly how, in post-communist societies, the contradictions of capitalism are interlaced with the mostly negative relics of communism. Moreover, the book shows how contradictory processes in post-communist societies have led to a rather paradoxical result: political pluralism and a capitalist economic system generated both violence against women and a women's movement, albeit not the conditions for a reduction of violence.
