The text is particularly strong in orienting the reader to the research issues, including the current state of knowledge in the area. I have found the text to be very well done and extremely useful in providing students with an introduction to the very broad field of family violence. I have recommended the text to colleagues and students. I applaud the authors for this work and thank them for creating such a comprehensive text." --Diane Hiebert-Murphy, Faculty of Social Work, University of Manitoba "This book includes an impressive overview of different types of violence and organizes a large amount of research material to make it accessible to the upper-level undergraduate.  Students will easily follow the organization of topics, themes, and questions, and long chapters include several intermediary summaries, which is good. --Jean Giles-Sims, Texas Christian University A thoroughly updated and expanded new edition of the bestseller, Family Violence Across the Lifespan, Second Edition helps students achieve a deeper understanding of the methodology, etiology, prevalence, treatment, and prevention of family violence.
