About this item

This book for students and scholars examines representations of domestic abuse and sexual assault in popular music, movies, books, criticizing the media’s reproduction of common myths about sexual assault but also highlighting some works with accurate depictions. The book begins with an overview of types of groups facing victimization, then describes ****** culture and how it has contributed to the creation of perpetrators. Later chapters examine depictions of offenders in popular culture, dissect myths about abuse and assault, describe popular media’s depictions of criminological theory, and detail responses to assault by victims, the police, the criminal justice system, and the community. The book ends with info on prevention programs, efforts to raise awareness, and media literary initiatives. Appendix A offers many briefly annotated entries, listing films, documentaries, songs, and popular fiction books featuring domestic abuse and sexual assault, from 2000 to the present. Appendix B lists a wealth of resources on ******, domestic abuse, and popular culture, including web sites, books, journals, and selected journal articles 2000-2015, all briefly annotated.
