The Batterer: A Psychological Profileby Donald G. Dutton, Susan K. Golant
Drawing on his pathbreaking studies of more than 700 abusive men-as well as therapy with hundreds more-psychologist Donald G. Dutton here paints a dramatic and startling portrait of the man who assaults his intimate partner, such as admitted abusers like lawyer Joel Steinberg, sports celebrity 0. J. Simpson, and choreographer Peter Martins. With dramatic case histories that shed light on the dark secrets of spousal abuse, and with its singular focus on the personality of the abuser, rather than that of the victim, The Batterer provides the missing link to show how men can harm the women they love and how we can begin to put an end to violence behind closed doors.
