About this title


Discusses the circumstances that lead to abusive relationships, recounts the experiences of survivors, and provides advice on how to identify a potential batterer, and how to get out of a violent relationship

From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up?While young people probably know more about abuse than adults would care to admit, Kosof offers them an in-depth look at the psychology of battery, both from the victim's and the perpetrator's point of view, paying some attention to the history of police intervention and the effects of domestic violence on dependent children. Perhaps it is a blessing that there are no illustrations. Kosof does include a number of first-hand accounts, and while they present typical women in typical abuse situations, the descriptions are not related in graphic detail. The voyeuristic attraction of such accounts is balanced by the author's analysis and careful handling of the research findings that explain why people stay in such relationships and the psychological growth that must take place for them to leave. The resources available to victims and the frank description of the tough road ahead of them are clearly delineated, as is the message that no woman need tolerate a situation where she is physically or mentally abused. There is, unfortunately, a real need for this book.?Ruth K. MacDonald, Bay Path College, Longmeadow, MA
