Since 1974 the abundance of articles and books published on family violence has heightened the awareness of the scope and significance of this problem. Now, a comprehensive interdisciplinary review of this literature synthesizes the past 20 years of accumulated research on partner violence. Summarizing the major findings of vast research on family violence, this book delineates the strengths and limitations of that research and makes practical recommendations for future research and current practice. Issues of prevention, intervention, treatment, and empirically based recommendations for response to partner violence are included. Skillfully edited by Jana L. Jasinski and Linda M. Williams, Partner Violence includes seven chapters written by notable scholars in the family violence field: David Finkelhor, Sherry Hamby, Glenda Kaufman Kantor, Patricia Mahoney, Jean Giles-Sims, Murray A. Straus, Carolyn West, and Janis Wolak. Easily accessible, Partner Violence makes an excellent text choice for family violence courses.

This up-to-date text provides a resource that is essential for students, researchers and practitioners in all fields concerned with family violence.
