Violence and Maltreatment in Intimate Relationships

Experience with SAGE edge


May 2017 | 400 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Violence and Maltreatment in Intimate Relationships provides current and complete coverage of physical, sexual, and psychological abuse that occurs within intimate relationships. Authors Cindy L. Miller-Perrin and Robin D. Perrin, co-authors of SAGE’s best-selling Family Violence Across the Life, Third Edition, have created a streamlined organizational framework in Violence and Maltreatment in Intimate Relationships which presents information to students in an accessible manner. In this new book, Miller-Perrin and Perrin have teamed up with renowned researcher Claire M. Renzetti, who draws on her extensive work on violence against women. The book offers both a sociological and psychological focus, examining traditional areas of interpersonal violence as well as forms of intimate abuse outside the family, and concludes with a call for appropriate social, legal, policy, and personal responses to address the problem of abuse in intimate relationships.
