Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marilyn A. Lavelle, MS (Eastern Maine Technical College)
Description: This comprehensive resource book describes domestic violence and child abuse issues. The large variety of resources discussed and cited in the book will provide the abused, abuser, and all affected by these social issues a wealth of information. Concrete tools are included, as well as current directions in treatment and research.
Purpose: The book is designed to provide the most helpful information for all those affected by family violence including the abused, the abuser, and those who care about them. It provides information on how to identify the different forms of violence and suggestions for staying safe and finding help. Secondarily, it is a resource of some of the competing viewpoints on the subject. The objectives are met for the most part. I feel the area of incest is shortchanged.
Audience: Although the book focuses on the lay audience, it is an excellent resource for those professionals (public healthcare workers) working in community settings as the wealth of resources it contains can be easily accessed. The book is edited and contains documents and excerpts from a large variety of copyrighted materials.
Features: The historical background is an excellent introduction. The book is a comprehensive view of all forms of domestic violence and child abuse. The chapters are well defined. The information on safety strategies is particularly complete. The information on new treatments and prevention strategies is also very broad, interesting, and innovative. The Preface and the "how to use the book" are very helpful. The table of contents guides readers to the area of greatest interest. The index is not as helpful as it is sometimes confusing. The checklists and assessment tools are concrete resources.
Assessment: This is important information. The Web has many resources but this sourcebook fills an important societal need. I am not aware of any other resources of this type.
Booknews
This reference is a compilation of writings about many facets of domestic violence from government reports, scholarly journals, mainstream publications, professional groups such as the American Psychological Association, and rape and domestic violence crisis centers. Sources are as disparate as the left-leaning magazine and the conservative , published by the Independent Women's Forum<-->a group that opposed the ground-breaking 1994 Violence Against Women Act. The result is a bit of a jumble: a great deal of wide-ranging, sometimes contradictory data without much effort at summing up either for the victim of abuse or for anyone who wants to help, the two main audiences the book is aimed at. Coverage includes partner violence (between men and women as well as in same-sex relationships), abuse in minority and disabled populations, child abuse, elder abuse, sibling and parent abuse, and prevention initiatives. Includes a glossary, a list of hot lines and organizations across the country, and a comprehensive 21-page bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
