Anatomy of Domestic Violence

A.K. Jha (Editor)
Synopsis Perpetrators of domestic violence come from all socioeconomic, cultural, and educational backgrounds. The stresses of poverty contribute to violence and seem to make the problem more common among those at the bottom of the class structure, but nonetheless most poor people are not violent. Being reared in abusive circumstances makes men more likely to be abusers and women more likely to be abusers and women more likely to be victims, but most children reared under these conditions are neither abusers nor victims. In a few cases men are beaten by women, although rarely do men suffer serious physical injury. Frequently there is no workable solution for female victims of domestic violence. For some victims the unrelenting cycle of violence produces diminished self-esteem, helplessness, depression, and exaggerated feelings of imprisonment, event the belief that they deserve abuse. This book analyses categorically the causes of domestic violence. While few chapters are devoted to violence and war also. Organised in twenty four chapters this book, gives an authoritative account of the problem. Students and scholars in the field besides social scientists and policy planners will find this a dependable reference book.
