Fundamentally concerned with the interrelations of theory and practice, Violence and Gender Relations makes a major contribution to the debates on violence and gender relations, particularly on violence and women, men, children, and the elderly. The editors gather together important new empirical research and focus on men's violence against women, organizational responses to gendered violence, and intergenerational violence and gender. In addition to more general theoretical analysis, this timely volume offers valuable suggestions for effective interventions and professional practices, particularly in the human services fields. Furthermore, the gendered approach to violence opens the door to analysis of other social divisions and oppressions, such as class, race, and age, and the implications of intervention in these areas. This volume also engages with the distinctions and connections between institutional violence and interpersonal violence. This valuable volume will prove especially enlightening for students and professionals in a variety of areas, including criminology, interpersonal violence, human services, management, and more.
