Description : In Violence Against Women, award-winning author Walter S. DeKeseredy offers a passionate but well-documented sociological overview of a sobering problem. He starts by outlining the scope of the challenge and debunks current attempts to label intimate violence as gender neutral. He then lays bare the structural practices that sustain this violence, leading to a discussion of long- and short-term policies to address the issue. DeKeseredy includes an examination of male complicity and demonstrates how boys and men can change their roles. Throughout, he responds to myths that dismiss threats to women's health and safety and provides an impassioned call to action for women, men, and policymakers.

Each of the 18 chapters belongs to one of three parts: theoretical and methodological issues in researching violence against women, types of violence against women, or prevention and direct intervention. The editors and contributing authors have crafted their work to encourage discussion and debate and also to address issues of diversity and cultural contexts, as well as to examine inequalities of race and ethnicity, social class, physical ability, sexual orientation, and geographic location. Key Updates to This Edition: - A new and autobiographical Reflections piece appears at the end of each chapter. - Six completely new chapters address new and emerging topics, including assessment (Chapter 3), sexual harassment (Chapter 4), the effects of pornography (Chapter 7), cross-cultural issues (Chapter 8), the role of the economy (Chapter 9), primary prevention (Chapter 11), and school-based programs and interventions. Another recent subject the authors include is the role of faith-based initiatives. - The book's foreword is jointly written by Senators Amy Klobuchar (D--MN) and Al Franken (D--MN), both Congressional advocates on behalf of victims of violence against women.
