Review:

Battered Wives is the first (and still the best) general introduction to the problem of abuse. Battered Wives includes excellent critical summaries of the legal and political status of battered wives and the extent to which their immediate predicament must be understood in broad political terms. Del Martin argues that the basis of the problem is not in husband/wife interaction or immediate triggering events, but in the institution of marriage, historical attitudes toward women, the economy, and inadequacies in legal and social service systems. Martin wants police and prosecutor functions constrained. She proposes specific legislation prohibiting wife abuse and suggest that judges protect the wife by closing the door to probation and de-emphasizing reconciliation. Other recommendations concern gun control, equal rights, and marriage contract legislation. Battered Wives is the seminal, benchmark title on the subject of domestic violence. --Midwest Book Review

From Library Journal:

A classic from the mid-1970s revised and still in print, this book deftly exposes the extent and seriousness of the problem of wife-battery. Drawing on historical, social, and legal research, Martin points out the complexity of the issue and the failure of the legal system and social service agencies to act effectively (LJ 12/15/76).
