Summary
  • How can we achieve the best understanding of violence against women and its complex ramifications? This book explores the incidence, prevalence, and scope of domestic violence and sexual assault in America and their consequences; factors that put people at risk of violence and that precipitate violence; what interventions are designed to do, whom they are reaching, and how to reach the majority of victims who do not seek help; and how best to structure the study of violence against women
  • "Understanding Violence Against Women" presents a comprehensive overview of current knowledge and identifies 4 areas with the greatest potential return from a research investment by increasing the understanding of and responding to domestic violence and rape: what interventions are designed to do, whom they are reaching, and how to reach many victims who do not seek help; factors that put people at risk of violence and that precipitate violence, including characteristics of offenders; the scope of domestic violence and sexual assault in America and its consequences to individuals, families, and society, including costs [and] how to structure the study of violence against women to yield more useful knowledge.
