About this book

This book presents a variety of socio-legal perspectives on issues of domestic violence and abuse. Focussing on contemporary research and practice developments in policing, law, statutory and voluntary sectors, the contributors to this volume cover a vast spectrum of initiatives and professional expertise concerned variably with protection, prevention and intervention priorities.
The challenges of “joined up” thinking across these perspectives are apparent as the varied definitions, underpinning ideologies, terminologies, the profile of the victim/survivor’s voice and identified gaps in service provision appearing in this book illustrate. As a reflection on the current economic climate, some of the perspectives presented necessarily compete rather than complement each other, an issue the volume highlights and addresses. Achieving a broader understanding of these issues and insights into a range of activity in this context is vital for both the practitioner and academic alike, whatever their perspective.

Reviews

“This publication provides a very useful collection of legal and social perspectives on issues of domestic violence and abuse, illuminating complex issues of definition, diversity, understanding, policy and practice. An accessible text for academics, practitioners and all of those with an interest in reducing the harm caused by violence and abuse in the domestic sphere.” (Rosa Logar, Director, Women Against Violence Europe)

 “In providing interdisciplinary perspectives on domestic violence and abuse, this book demonstrates the vital importance of how we think about violence, victims and perpetrators to the practical task of designing and maintaining effective strategies for protection, prevention and intervention.” (Rosemary Hunter, Professor of Law and Socio-Legal Studies at Queen Mary University of London, UK)
