Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Combining current research findings on the legal, social, historical, and psychological aspects of domestic violence, this comprehensive handbook also includes strategic advice (i.e., tips for escaping a violent situation, getting a restraining order). Useful for both victims and professionals. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Denise Perry Donavin
Bradley defines domestic abuse as "the systematic persecution of one partner by another," a definition that encompasses physical, sexual, and emotional battering. Most of Berry's book is taken up with discussing the history and psychology as well as the legal and familial elements of this complex issue. She strongly suggests that not until people understand its impact on personal and societal levels can change be achieved. Berry then discusses prevention and improvement programs as well as immediate shelter and aid for women under siege. An extensive bibliography and lists of helpful organizations are appended.
WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women
In 1994, four million cases of domestic violence were reported in this country. An estimated 90% of battered women never report their abuse. About half of all homeless women and children fled domestic violence. These are but a smattering of the grim statistics which open The Domestic Violence Sourcebook. Written by a civil rights attorney, the Sourcebook offers a broad overview on domestic violence, its history, why it happens, how society's institutions–the legal system, churches, certain communities and the media–treat it, and what kinds of programs and resources are available for victims and abusers. Stories from women who have left abusive situations punctuate many of these discussions, and the last chapter is devoted to practical advice on how to leave, what to do afterwards and how to help someone else. The section on the law is one of the book's strong points, particularly valuable since it is crucial that battered women know their rights and how to make the best use of the legal system (which isn't always supportive). Part education and part practical handbook, this book is for anyone concerned with eradicating domestic violence, particularly those facing it daily.
