Useful book although its age now dictates it is read alongside more contemporary work. It does however provide a sustained analysis of the cultural contexts in which violence against women and girls occurs and explores a number of theoretical explanatory frameworks.
This book is very good source for my students working on their assignment which is about demostic violence, easy to read and current.
This title is also available on SAGE Knowledge, the ultimate social sciences online library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
