Issues in Intimate Violence

About the eBook

Designed specifically for undergraduate students, Issues in Intimate Violence provides a comprehensive and accessible anthology that prepares the foundation for understanding a wide range of violence that commonly occurs in families and between intimates. This collection of 22 scholarly yet readable chapters represents a variety of disciplines from both a theoretical and an applied approach. Many articles offer a feminist perspective that addresses the gendered nature of violence and the consequences of power inequality in our society. Created to make learning about intimate violence an accessible and cohesive process, each section is introduced by editor Raquel Kennedy Bergen and concludes with discussion questions.

A variety of violence topics are included:

  • Child abuse
  • Incest
  • Violence in heterosexual dating relationships
  • Violence in gay and lesbian relationships
  • Acquaintance rape
  • Wife abuse and wife rape
  • Elder abuse

While primarily directed to undergraduate students, this book is also well-suited for similar courses at the graduate level and will appeal to anyone working with survivors of intimate violence as well as the interested lay reader.
