Description: The first book to explore -- in one volume -- the causes, consequences, and prevalence of domestic violence and the positive law enforcement response. Using a socio-legal approach -- with emphasis on the practical criminal justice perspective -- it offers a contemporary view of the criminal justice experience with diverse forms of domestic violence and populations: violence against women; dating violence; sibling abuse, rape and incest; child and elder abuse and neglect; male battering; lesbian and gay violence; specific issues affecting African Americans and American Indians. Balanced and thorough, it exposes the myths about both victims and offenders, showing how women and men, the elderly and children, heterosexuals and homosexuals all can be perpetrators and victims as well.
