0 Reviews
This book provides university students, policy makers, activists, public health workers, clinicians and lay citizens alike with an overview of the scope of the problem of gender-based violence worldwide, as well as a sense of the important work now underway to eradicate it. An integration of a vast range of data and insights from all the major disciplines that have contributed to our understanding of this problem, this book is valuable as a classroom text. The authors have been guided throughout this work by the desire to contribute a document that would move the current international discourse along by providing an historical, interdisciplinary overview that is at once critical, constructive and visionary.
