Domestic violence is a serious, widespread public, social and health problem that affects the lives of many women, children, and men. There is also evidence to suggest it has one of the highest rates of recidivism. This comprehensive book provides an overview of what the research tells us about the perpetrators of domestic violence and what works, and what does not, in promoting positive change. It is a collection of the most up-to-date evidence from the international literature and brings psychological, sociological, gendered and socio-political theoretical perspectives to bear on the issue.
