Family Violence in the United States: Defining, Understanding, and Combating Abuse examines all types of family aggression. The book is designed to provoke readers into questioning assumptions, evaluating information, formulating hypotheses, and designing solutions to problems of family violence in the United States. Using an ecological framework, authors Denise A. Hines and Kathleen Malley-Morrison provide a thought-provoking and informative discussion not only of the most well-recognized forms of maltreatment in families, but also of less understood and more controversial issues such as husband abuse, parent abuse, and gay/lesbian abuse.

About the Author:

Denise A. Hines, Ph.D., is a Research Associate Professor in the Psychology Department at Clark University, where she is also the Director of the Family Impact Seminar Series and the Co-Director of the Clark Anti-Violence Education Program. She completed her doctoral degree in Psychology at Boston University, and then spent two years as an NIMH postdoctoral research fellow at the University of New Hampshire’s Family Research Laboratory with Drs. Murray Straus and David Finkelhor. She is the author or co-author of over 30 articles or book chapters, and two books on issues of family violence, both published by Sage. She has also been the principal investigator on five major grants, focusing on issues of the etiology of partner violence; prevention of dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking on college campuses; and the mental and physical health of male victims of partner violence and their children.

Review:

"One of the major achievements of social science in the past 25 years is the increased understanding of the causes and consequences of family violence. However, students are likely to experience this accumulated body of knowledge as an impenetrable thicket of statistics and theories. Hines and Malley-Morrison’s book cuts through the thicket. It is both scientifically accurate and readable. Throughout the book there are challenging questions to help students move from passive reading to intellectual engagement. Moreover, they combine scientific integrity with compassion for victims and attention to ways to end this ancient scourge."
