Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“There has been a lot published on gender-based violence in the last 15 years, but there isn't any one work that does what this volume seeks to do. The book would be a good supplement for undergraduate courses in Women's Studies, Political Science, and the like.”--December Green, Professor of Political Science and Director of International Studies, Wright State University
