Based on a series of international workshops sponsored by the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundations, this cutting-edge volume advances theories, methodologies, and policy analyses relating to various forms of violence against women. Under the skillful editorship of Rebecca Emerson and Russell P.

Divided in three parts, this text takes a comprehensive examination of the following topics: +

Rethinking Survey Research on Violence against Women
L Kelly and J Radford

M Wilson and M Daly
Lethal and Non-Lethal Violence against Wives and the Evolutionary Psychology of Male Sexual Proprietariness

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.
