About the Author:

Donileen R. Loseke is Assistant Professor of Sociology in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Social Work at Skidmore College.

Review:

“The book brings a fresh and needed perspective to an issue that is too often treated in the simplistic fashion of a television movie. There are no persons wearing ‘white’ and ‘black’ hats in this book. Rather, the book focuses on the practical dilemmas and circumstances faced by shelter workers in fulfilling their professional obligations. Loseke offers us a way of seeing shelter work as it is. In doing so, she raises issues that some readers may find discomforting because they clash with their television movie visions of battered women and shelter workers. What Loseke offers is a vision of battered women and shelter workers as human beings and practical actors who use available cultural resources to understand and manage the troubles of everyday life. This is a thoughtful and sophisticated approach to an important social issue.” ― Gale Miller, Marquette University
