Every 3 minutes a woman I raped! Every 15 seconds a woman is battered! Every 6 hours a woman is battered to death! Domestic Violence in America is a uniquely interesting book. It presents an inter-disciplinary approach to the elimination of spousal battery. The thesis of this volume purports that the stopping of domestic violence in our society is contingent on collaborative efforts among mental health professionals, medical practitioners, law enforcement, the judiciary, academia, and, above all, the family. The author has masterfully woven his argument in a colorful quilt of multi-disciplinary cooperation unprecedented in the medical and social sciences, but convincingly essential if our women and children are to be safe from family violence.
