The new edition of this vital resource provides extensive coverage of the current state of research, theory, prevention, and intervention regarding violence against women. Each of the 18 chapters belongs to one of three parts: theoretical and methodological issues in researching violence against women, types of violence against women, or prevention and direct intervention. The editors and contributing authors have crafted their work to encourage discussion and debate and also to address issues of diversity and cultural contexts, as well as to examine inequalities of race and ethnicity, social class, physical ability, sexual orientation, and geographic location. Key updates to this edition include the following: a new and autobiographical reflections piece that appears at the end of each chapter; and six completely new chapters that address new and emerging topics, including assessment (Chapter 3), sexual harassment (Chapter 4), the effects of pornography (Chapter 7), cross-cultural issues (Chapter 8), the role of the economy (Chapter 9), primary prevention (Chapter 11), and school-based programs and interventions. Another recent subject the authors include is the role of faith-based initiatives. The book's foreword is jointly written by Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Al Franken (D-MN), both Congressional advocates on behalf of victims of violence against women.
