Praise for First Edition:

`This is an important book' - Young Minds Newsletter

`This book is a valuable and timely summary of current research into violence within the family. Most of the chapters are up to date, and there is surprisingly little overlap between them. It has been well edited, being readable and of uniform style.... the... volume should be a helpful reference text for undergraduates, and many of the reviews will make good introductions to postgraduate level seminars. I can recommend it' - Criminal Behaviour and Mental Health

Completely rewritten to reflect recent research into family and intimate violence this Second Edition of Family Violence explores the subject from its origins to assessment and treatment.

The revision offers a summary of some of the best current scholarship conducted by

family researchers.
