Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Activists and professionals who are also abuse survivors address the unique characteristics of same-sex violence and argue for improved assessment and service delivery for gays and lesbians. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Booknews
Domestic violence and date rape are not the exclusive realm of heterosexual couples, though not much has been written about abusive same-sex relationships. In redressing this gap, 21 papers by human service and legal professionals and gay and lesbian activists confront issues involved in: hearing the problem (with three personal stories); legal perspectives (e.g. equal protection and courtroom accessibility); building coalitions (AIDS is not overlooked); and providing services (including support group models, and an argument for separate services for battered lesbians and bisexual women). Paper edition (unseen), $24.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
