Since its publication in 1979, Family Violence has proved to be one of the most popular volumes for professional and text use in its area. The second edition reflects new concerns of family violence studies and advances in Gelles' own work. It includes topics that have emerged since the first edition - such as elder abuse and adolescent-to-parent violence - as well as the discovery by Gelles and his colleagues of a drastic drop in the incidence of family violence over the last decade.
