To compliment these new essays, the collection features significant scholarship and commentary on The Comedy of Errors that is published in obscure and difficulty accessible journals, newspapers, and other sources.

Description : Arguing that law must be looked at holistically, this book investigates the ‘hidden gender’ of the so-called neutral or objective legal principles that structure the law addressing violence against women. Adopting an explicitly feminist perspective, it investigates how legal responses to violence against women presuppose, maintain and perpetuate a certain context that may not in fact reflect women’s experiences. Carline and Easteal draw upon relevant legislation, case law and secondary studies from a range of territories, including Australia, England and Wales, the United States, Canada and Europe, to contextualize and critique different policy responses. They go on to examine the potential and limits of law, making recommendations for best practice models of policymaking and law reform. Aiming to help improve government, community and legal responses to women who experience violence, Shades of Grey – Domestic and Sexual Violence Against Women: Law Reform and Society will assist law-makers, academics, policymakers and a wider audience in understanding the complexities of violence against women.

Description : This book aims to examine legal responses to domestic violence in a holistic way. In England and Wales, as in other jurisdictions, much attention has been paid to the criminal justice response to domestic violence. The response of the civil justice system has not been ignored, but has been somewhat marginalized. Legal Responses to Domestic Violence takes a systematic approach to examining legal responses, encompassing the full range of decision makers within the legal system to analyze developments in substantive law and practice, in particular the movement towards an integrated justice approach.

Description : The new edition of this vital resource provides extensive coverage of the current state of research, theory, prevention, and intervention regarding violence against women. 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.
