Using different disciplinary approaches, this collection of thoughtful and timely selections focuses on integrating issues related to violence and gender. "Violence and Gender" enables readers to learn about these complex issues so they can work to lessen the occurrence of violence in their personal and professional lives. The introductory section presents a number of theories of violence that ground readers in different theories and reasons for violent behavior. The subsequent sections deal with the topics of gender, youth violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, violence and sports, and media representation of violence. Because of its comprehensive coverage of many issues, this book can serve as an excellent resource for sociologists, criminologists, justice administrators, psychologists, therapists, and those involved in social work.
