“Interpersonal violence encompasses a wide range of human behaviors. Assault, bullying, child abuse, discrimination, domestic violence, genocide, kidnapping, murder, neglect, rape, self-inflicted injuries, stalking, terrorism and torture may all be defined as violence between individuals. The scope of this encyclopedia covers almost all forms of violence, except armed conflict between nations. Coverage includes both the victims and the perpetrators of violence, with the emphasis upon research-supported studies.
“Students and professionals in the fields of substance abuse prevention and treatment are the primary audience for this new encyclopedia. Essays on models and theories of addiction and prevention outline key concepts like abstinence, sobriety, or codependency. Examinations of the neurological affects of specific classes of drugs detail the biological basis of addiction. Articles on disorders, disease and injected drug use explore related health issues. Many legal, criminal and social questions are discussed in essays on public policy.
"The first attempt at a comprehensive work on interpersonal violence, this encyclopedia should be considered the resource to consult for those interested in various aspects of this social problem. Written by expert contributors who examine the occurrence and prevalence of all forms of interpersonal violence, the 500 easy-to-read, jargon-free entries provide definitions of key concepts, theoretical principles, relevant legislation, and public policies on the topic.
