Levesque (psychology and law, U. or Arizona) describes the policies that are meant to protect families but repeatedly fail to protect individual family members. He explores the cultural beliefs and laws that support the family unit as a safe haven, and also discusses the range of violence that is linked to families, such as child exploitation, adolescent relationship violence, elder neglect, and spousal abuse. Drawing on the UN's international human rights mandates, Levesque argues that human rights should dictate responses to violence not only at the international and national levels, but also at the most basic level of society: in the family.
