Domestic Violence: The Criminal Justice Response
This is the fully revised and updated Third Edition of one of the top books on domestic violence. Eve S Buzawa and Carl G Buzawa have incorporated a wealth of new empirical research on how the criminal justice system's responses to domestic violence have changed in the seven years since the last edition was written. Domestic Violence is unique in that it places an emphasis on the victim's perspective: the needs, preferences and satisfaction for intervention, as well as the impact of interventions. Domestic Violence examines the victim diversity and how this effects their needs, preferences, and attitudes, as well as their service needs and interventions. It also highlights the diversity among batterers and how this impacts the efficacy of various intervention strategies. It provides an analysis of where innovative programmes have had mixed or inconclusive results, as well as where major strides in research and treatment have been made. This New Edition is multidisciplinary and will be of interest to academics and students in social work, domestic violence and health administration and policy.
