Overview

The first edition of Philip W. Cook's book, Abused Men: The Hidden Side of Domestic Violence (Praeger, 1997), drew attention and praise nationwide from individuals and from media, ranging from CNN and Fox network's The O'Reilly Factor to scholarly publications such as The Journal of Marriage and Family. On the 10th anniversary of that groundbreaking book, Cook began revising and expanding his work. The result is this second edition—a disturbing look at a trend that continues to increase.

The new edition of Abused Men: The Hidden Side of Domestic Violence offers up-to-date data on the prevalence of intimate partner violence against men, incorporating personal interviews and cases drawn from the media. It also includes updates on law, legislation, court activity, social responses, police activity, support groups, batterer programs, and crisis intervention programs.

    A realistic book on intimate violence by a non-participant observer.

    This book discusses the sexism and prejudice in the court systems as it pertains to men and women. It also covers the laws and how the laws are written with the pronouns he, him, father, and husband showing the intentional bias and the forgone conclusion that the abuser is always male. I found this book highly educational and especially liked the research the author did on the various studies that feminists always quote to back up their claims. The author discusses that the flipside of the coin is often hidden or misconstrued to the general public (EX: The urban legend behind super bowl Sunday being the biggest day of intimate violence towards women.) He does not downplay the seriousness of male batterers nor does he blame women. He states that things are not always what they seem especially in the media. I really liked his relevance about the double standard portrayed in film. It is funny, even comical, for a woman to smack a man¿s face but not the other way around. And when a woman hits a man ¿he deserved it.¿ No one deserves to be hit, period. The author does a thorough job in discussing how hard it is for women to get help for being a batterer and how hard it is for men to seek shelter from intimate violence. Men can suffer from ¿battered wife¿ syndrome just as much as a woman can. It is good that this author can bring some of these hidden issues to society¿s attention.

    Intimate Violence: The Case of Abused Men

    Philip Cook's Abused Men  is well conceived, well documented, and well written; it is an excellent source book for both perpetrators and victims of domestic violence as well as for  police officers, community leaders, health care providers, family therapists, crisis-line workers, and other helping professionals. Another positive aspect of this book is Cook's  ability to make research findings on male abuse and its consequences accessible and understandable for readers new to the field of domestic violence.

    Persecution of the Victim

    This is a VITAL book that must be required reading of all involved in the domestic violence industry. As a victim of domestic violence I was treated with disdain by the police when seeking help left on the street by the police with my six month old twins when it was unsafe to remain in the house almost killed (my head was hacked open by her wielding a carving knife) and am currently being persecuted by the Middlesex County Mass system because she demanded the police throw me out of my home after she attacked me (and told them I had never hit her!!!). I have been assaulted by police and court 'officers' and put in jail because of their assaults, lost my father who suffered a heart attack on the phone with me when I called to inform him of her latest abuse and what the courts had done in response. I was denied all due process and statutorily guaranteed rights at the 'hearing' where the 'Judge' heard her testimony in his chambers denying me the right to hear what she had to say and refusing to permit me to speak or question her. I was astounded to discover that my experience was not a rare and appalling aberration but the day to day policy of most District Attorney's offices and courts throughout the nation. The disgraceful fact is that anyone who attempts to speak out against this abuse (the sytem has been perverted into the perfect tool of the abuser) is visciously attacked even to the extent of having her house firebombed in the case of Erin Pizzey (who founded the first ever shelter for battered women). Buy this book and demand that all elected officials, prosecuters, judges and all associated with the domestic violence industry read it and understand that such violence must be stopped regardless of the gender of the victim. Until we do the victims that all these people ignore, the children who are traumatised and whose lives are destroyed by this out of control zealotry will remain the forgotten casualties.
