Sourcebook on Violence Against Women (Paperback)
about this item
The Third Edition of the comprehensive Sourcebook on Violence Against Women by Claire M. Renzetti, Jeffrey L. Edleson, and Raquel Kennedy Bergen covers the current state of research, theory, prevention, and intervention regarding violence against women. The book’s 15 chapters are divided into three parts: theoretical and methodological issues in researching violence against women; types of violence against women; and, new to this edition, programs that work. Featuring new chapters, pedagogy, sections on controversies in the field, and autobiographical essays by leaders in grassroots anti-violence work, the Third Edition has been designed to encourage discussion and debate, to address issues of diversity and cultural contexts, and to examine inequalities of race and ethnicity, social class, physical ability, sexual orientation, and geographic location.
