1 Review
This is an honest and insightful discussion of domestic violence from the perspective of a police officer who has experienced it in his home and encountered it professionally. Davis, a sociologist as well, uses his dual background to demonstrate that current treatment of domestic violence abuses is ineffective. A must read for all police officers, criminologists, and citizens who care about finding a successful solution to this issue.

Wow.. another all women are victims, all men are abusers book! As a woman, I find it offensive, as a mother of a young son, I find it frightning! Domestic Violence is a terrible crime, whether commited by Male or Female, and whether it's physical, sexual or emotional/mental!
