The SAGE Handbook of Domestic Violence
Todd K. Shackelford
The field of Domestic Violence research has expanded considerably in the past
decade and now includes work conducted by researchers in many different
disciplines, notably political science, public health, law, psychology,
sociology, criminology, anthropology, family studies, and medicine. _The_
_SAGE Handbook of Domestic Violence_ provides a rich overview of the most
important theoretical and empirical work in the field, organized by
relationship type. The handbook addresses three major areas of research on
- Violence against partners
- Violence against children
- Violence against other family members.
This Handbook is a unique and timely publication and a long awaited, valuable
resource for the vast amount of Domestic Violence research centres and
individual researchers across the globe.
