Working with Domestic Violence and Abuse Across the Lifecourse Understanding Good Practice
Dr Ravi K. Thiara, Lorraine Radford
Spanning children’s and adult’s services, this book explores the nature and impact of domestic abuse and violence (DVA) throughout the lifecourse.

Boys, Childhood Domestic Abuse and Gang Involvement: Violence at Home, Violence On-Road
Boys and young men have been previously overlooked in domestic violence and abuse policy and practice, particularly in the case of boys who are criminalized and labelled as gang-involved by the time they reach their teens. Jade Levell offers radical and important insights into how boys in this context navigate their journey to manhood with the constant presence of violence in their lives, in addition to poverty and racial marginalization. Of equal interest to academics and front-line practitioners, the book highlights the narratives of these young men and makes practice recommendations for supporting these ‘hidden victims.

Image-based Sexual Abuse – A Study on the Causes and Consequences of Non-consensual Nude or Sexual Imagery
Nicola Henry, Clare McGlynn, Asher Flynn, Kelly Johnson, Anastasia Powell, Adrian J. Scott
This book investigates the causes and consequences of image-based sexual abuse in a digital era. Image-based sexual abuse refers to the taking or sharing of nude or sexual photographs or videos of another person without their consent. It includes a diversity of behaviours beyond that of “revenge porn”, such as the secret trading of nude or sexual images online; “upskirting”, “downblousing” and other “creepshots”; blackmail or “sextortion” scams; the use of artificial intelligence to construct “deepfake” pornographic videos; threats to distribute photographs and videos without consent; and the taking or sharing of sexual assault imagery.

Coercive Control in Children’s and Mothers’ Lives
Coercive control is a severe form of domestic violence experienced by millions of children worldwide. It involves a perpetrator using a range of tactics to intimidate, humiliate, degrade, exploit, isolate and control a partner or family member. Drawing on interviews with children and mothers who have experienced coercive control-based domestic violence, Dr Emma Katz sheds light on the impacts of coercive control on children, how it is perpetrators who must be held accountable for those impacts, and how resistance by children and mothers occurs. Breaking free from coercive control is not a one-off event but a sustained battle for safety and recovery in which child and adult survivors need supports and professional interventions that work.

The Routledge International Handbook of Domestic Violence and Abuse
Edited by John Devaney, Caroline Bradbury-Jones, Rebecca J. Macy, Carolina Overline, Stephanie Holt
This book makes an important contribution to the international understanding of domestic violence and shares the latest knowledge of what causes and sustains domestic violence between intimate partners, as well as the effectiveness of responses in working with adult and child victims, and those who act abusively towards their partners. Drawing upon a wide range of contemporary research from across the globe, it recognises that domestic violence is both universal, but also shaped by local cultures and contexts. Divided into seven parts: Introduction, Theoretical perspectives on domestic violence and abuse, Domestic violence and abuse across the life-course, Manifestations of domestic violence and abuse, Responding to domestic violence and abuse, Researching domestic violence and abuse, and Concluding thoughts. It will be of interest to all academics and students working in social work, allied health, sociology, criminology and gender studies as well as policy professionals looking for new approaches to the subject.
See What You Made Me Do
Every year in England and Wales alone, one in twenty adults suffer domestic abuse, two thirds of them women. Every week, two men kill a woman they were intimate with. And still we ask the wrong question: Why didn’t she leave? Instead, we should ask: Why did he do it? Investigative journalist Jess Hill puts perpetrators — and the systems that enable them — in the spotlight. Her radical reframing of domestic abuse takes us beyond the home to explore how power, culture and gender intersect to both produce and normalise abuse. She boldly confronts uncomfortable questions about how and why society creates abusers, but can’t seem to protect their victims, and shows how we can end this dark cycle of fear and control.

Trauma and Recovery: The Aftermath of Violence–From Domestic Abuse to Political Terror
When Trauma and Recovery was first published in 1992, it was hailed as a ground-breaking work. In the intervening years, Herman’s volume has changed the way we think about and treat traumatic events and trauma victims. Trauma and Recovery brings a new level of understanding to a set of problems usually considered individually. Herman draws on her own cutting-edge research in domestic violence as well as on the vast literature of combat veterans and victims of political terror, to show the parallels between private terrors such as rape and public traumas such as terrorism. The book puts individual experience in a broader political frame, arguing that psychological trauma can be understood only in a social context.

Legitimate Sexpectations exposes the limits of the criminal justice system and the fault lines in our society when it comes to sex, sexuality, and relationships. Through storytelling that moves between heartbreak and hope, Marson makes the case for a cultural shift towards valuing sexual wellbeing and preventing sexual violence in the first place. In doing so, she calls on us all to play our part to ensure that young people’s sexual experiences are not just free from violence, but far from violent.

Charlotte Barlow and Sandra Walklate
This book offers a critical appreciation of the nature and impact of coercive control in interpersonal relationships. It examines what this concept means, who is impacted by the behaviours it captures, and how academics, policymakers, and policy advocates have responded to the increasing recognition of the deleterious effects that coercive control has on especially women’s lives.

A Typology of Domestic Violence
Michael P. Johnson
Johnson argues that domestic violence is not a unitary phenomenon. Instead, he delineates three major, dramatically different, forms of partner violence: intimate terrorism, violent resistance, and situational couple violence. He roots the conceptual distinctions among the forms of violence in an analysis of the role of power and control in relationship violence and shows that the failure to make these basic distinctions among types of partner violence has produced a research literature that is plagued by both overgeneralisations and ostensibly contradictory findings. This volume begins the work of theorizing forms of domestic violence, a crucial first step to a better understanding of these phenomena among scholars, social scientists, policy makers, and service providers.

Invisible Chains: Overcoming Coercive Control in Your Intimate Relationship
Lisa Aronson Fontes
When you are showered with attention, it can feel incredibly romantic and can blind you to hints of problems ahead. But what happens when attentiveness becomes domination? If the desire to control leads to jealousy, gaslighting, threats, micromanaging and physical violence. If you or someone you care about are trapped in a web of coercive control, this book provides answers, hope, and a way out. Lisa Aronson Fontes draws on both professional expertise and personal experience to help you recognise controlling behaviours of all kinds, understand why this destructive pattern occurs, determine whether you are in danger and if your partner can change, protect yourself and your kids, find the support and resources you need, take action to improve or end your relationship, regain your freedom and independence.

Violence against Women: Criminological Perspectives on Men’s Violences
Including discussion of fifteen different types of violence against women, this book is original in offering an introduction to such a broad range of topics, and for including chapters on violences that have rarely been written about, as well as those that are more commonly discussed and those that have been side-lined in recent years. By bringing together work on violence against women committed by partners, family members, strangers, acquaintances, institutions and businesses, this book widens the lens through which we view men’s violences against women.

Violence Against Women: Vulnerable Populations
Douglas A. Brownridge
Violence Against Women: Vulnerable Populations investigates under-researched and underserved groups of women who are particularly vulnerable to violent victimization from an intimate male partner. In the past, there has been an understandable reluctance to address this issue to avoid stereotyping vulnerable groups of women. However, developments in the field, particularly intersectionality theory, which recognizes women’s diversity in experiences of violence, suggest that the time has come to make the study of violence in vulnerable populations a new sub-field in the area.

Look What You Made Me Do: A Powerful Memoir of Coercive Control
Not all abuse leaves a mark. For more than two years, BBC Radio 4’s The Archers ran a disturbing storyline centred on Helen Titchener’s abuse at the hands of her husband Rob. Not the kind of abuse that leaves a bruise, but the sort of coercive control that breaks your spirit and makes it almost impossible to walk away. As she listened to the unfolding story, Helen Walmsley-Johnson was forced to confront her own agonizing past. Look What You Made Me Do is her candid and utterly gripping memoir of how she was trapped by a smiling abuser, not once but twice. It is a vital guide to recognising, understanding and surviving this sinister form of abuse and its often terrible legacy. It is also an inspirational account of how one woman found the courage to walk away.

Understanding social inequality
Tim Butler, Paul Watt
“This is a book that should be read by anyone interested in class, inequality, poverty and politics. Actually, probably more importantly it should be read by people who think that those things do not matter! It provides a wonderful summation of the huge amount of work on these topics that now exists and it also offers its own distinctive perspectives on a set of issues that are – despite the claims of some influential commentators – still central to the sociological enterprise and, indeed to political life.” Roger Burrows, University of York

Women, Violence and Social Control: Explorations in Sociology
Jalna Hanmer, Mary Maynard
Violence towards women is being given an increasingly high profile in the media. Mainstream sociology, however, has yet to address it as a central issue. The various contributors to this book correct this omission by producing new research data and theoretical insights, demonstrating that violence against women is socially constructed along gender lines. The topics covered include: indecent exposure, psychosurgery, sexual harassment and the way violence to women is treated in courts of law. But this volume goes further than empirical description. It underlines the importance of male violence in the subordination of women. The chapters display the hierarchical nature of a society where gender stratification is fundamental and violence, and its threat, play a major role in the social control of women.

LOVE’S LABOR – Essays on Women, Equality, and Dependency (Thinking Gender)
by Eva Feder Kittay
This fascinating study of women carers explores the significance of dependency work by analyzing John Rawls’ influential liberal theory and two examples of public policy – welfare reform and family leave – to show how both theory and policy fail women when they miss the centrality of dependency to questions of justice. A vision of an equal society is required, one which recognizes that those who care for others require the support of the larger community.

Coercive Control: How Men Entrap Women in Personal Life (Interpersonal Violence)
The story of physical and sexual violence against women has been told often. But this is the first book to show that most abused women who seek help do so because their rights and liberties have been jeopardized, not because they have been injured. The coercive control model Stark develops resolves three of the most perplexing challenges posed by abuse: why these relationships endure, why abused women develop a profile of problems seen among no other group of assault victims, and why the legal system has failed to win them justice.
