About the Author: Evan Stark is a forensic social worker and award-winning researcher with an international reputation for his work on the legal, policy, and health dimensions of interpersonal violence. A founder of one of the first shelters for abused women in the United States, in the 1980s, Professor Stark codirected the Yale Trauma Studies with Professor Anne Flitcraft, which was path-breaking research that was the first to document the significance of domestic violence for female injury as well as its links to child abuse and a range of other health and behavioral problems. The findings from these studies appeared in "Women at Risk: Domestic Violence and Women's Health "(Sage, l996). Professor Stark has served as an expert in more than 100 criminal and civil cases, including "Nicholson v. Williams", a successful federal class-action suit against New York City that made it unconstitutional to remove children from mothers solely because the mothers had been victims of domestic violence. Furthermore, he has consulted with numerous federal and state agencies and has won several prestigious awards for his work. His book "Coercive Control: The Entrapment of Women in Personal Life "(2007) won awards from the Association of American Publishers and the American Library Association and was recently the subject of a special issue of "Violence Against Women". With a PhD from Binghamton University, State University of New York, an MSW from Fordham, and a BS from Brandeis University, he is a professor at the School of Public Affairs and Administration at Rutgers-Newark, where he is also Director of Public Health. Professor Stark holds a joint appointment in women and gender studies at Rutgers-New Brunswick and is a professor and Chair of the Department of Urban Health Administration at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey's School of Public Health.
