9780415642217: Encyclopedia of Domestic Violence

The Encyclopedia of Domestic Violence is a modern reference from the leading international scholars in domestic violence research. This ground-breaking project has created the first ever publication of an encyclopedia of domestic violence. The primary goal of the Encyclopedia is to provide information on a variety of traditional, as well as breakthrough, issues in this complex phenomenon.

The coverage of the Encyclopedia is broad and diverse, encompassing the entire life span from infancy to old age. The entries include the traditional research areas, such as battered women, child abuse and dating violence. However, this Encyclopedia is unique in that it includes many under-studied areas of domestic violence, such as ritual abuse-torture within families, domestic violence against women with disabilities, pseudo-family violence and domestic violence within military families. It is also unique in that it examines cross-cultural perspectives of domestic violence.

One of the key special features in this Encyclopedia is the cross-reference section at the end of each entry. This allows the reader the ability to continue their research of a particular topic.

This book will be an easy-to-read reference guide on a host of topics, which are alphabetically arranged. Precautions have been taken to ensure that the Encyclopedia is not politically slanted; rather, it is hoped that it will serve as a basic guide to better understanding the myriad issues surrounding this labyrinthine topic.

Topics covered include: Victims of Domestic Violence; Theoretical Perspectives and Correlates to Domestic Violence; Cross-Cultural Perspectives and Religious Perspectives; Understudied Areas within Domestic Violence Research; Domestic Violence and the Law; and Child Abuse and Elder Abuse.

About the Author:

Nicky Ali Jackson is Associate Professor of Political Science at Purdue University.

From Booklist:

Encyclopedia of Domestic Violence positions itself well in the midst of other social-science reference titles that deal with modern social issues: abortion, alcoholism, child abuse, controlled substances, etc. Though it is unique as a single-volume subject encyclopedia on the topic, numerous other titles include some coverage of domestic violence. Is there something about this that makes it stand out and, more specifically, makes it worth the purchase price? The 138 A–Z entries fall into seven categories, including "Child Abuse and Elder Abuse," "Domestic Violence and the Law," and several others that one might expect from a volume such as this. The category that sets this effort apart from what already exists in the literature is "Cross-Cultural and Religious Perspectives." Not only are there articles on particular American groups (for example, African Americans) and their cultural attitudes with regard to domestic violence but non-American perspectives on domestic violence and its legal implications are presented in several entries on Africa as well as entries on Greece, Spain, and other countries. Also covered are attitudes toward domestic violence from some major religious groups, such as in the entry Qur'anic perspectives on wife abuse. The cross-cultural and multicultural focus of these articles is one of the encyclopedia's strengths. Another category worth noting is "Understudied Areas within Domestic Violence Research," most of which have to do with nontraditional relationships. Examples include Caregiver violence against people with disabilities, Lesbian battering, and Male victims of domestic violence and reasons they stay with their abusers. Each article is several pages long, with cross-references to other articles in the volume and with substantial bibliographies. The majority of contributors have an academic affiliation, some from foreign universities. There is a thorough and comprehensive index. Academic libraries with a focus on social sciences and large public libraries with substantial social-sciences collections will want to give this volume serious consideration. Hoover, Danise
