Claire M. Renzetti, PhD, is the Judi Conway Patton Endowed Chair in the Center for Research on Violence Against Women, and Professor and Chair of the Sociology Department at the University of Kentucky. She is editor of the international, interdisciplinary journal, Violence Against Women; co-editor with Jeffrey Edleson of the Interpersonal Violence book series for Oxford University Press; and editor of the Gender and Justice book series for University of California Press. She has authored or edited 25 books as well as numerous book chapters and articles in professional journals. Much of her research has focused on the violent victimization experiences of socially and economically marginalized women. Her current research includes studies examining the relationship between religiosity and intimate partner violence perpetration, an evaluation of a horticultural therapy program at a shelter for battered women, and a study of potential jurors’ prototypes of sex trafficking victims and perpetrators. She has held elected and appointed leadership positions in national and regional professional organizations, and has been honored with awards for her work to improve the quality of life and the health and safety of women.
"The text is geared towards an approach to interdisciplinary undergraduate studies (human services, psychology, social work, criminal justice) and offers broad coverage of issues pertaining to violence against women. The authors leave no stones uncovered from creating awareness about research on victims to batterer interventions."(Diana L. Bruns)
"I think it is important for students to view the issues beyond their life stories and see them through the view of practitioners, the courts, and law enforcement―this book does that!"(Carolyn Slotten)
