MEDIA REVIEWS

Intimate Partner Violence is written from the perspective of those on the front lines of this most serious social challenge that affects so many in so many different ways-from the criminal to family court and child custody cases-with collateral issues like substance abuse and mental health problems. The authors are experienced in all aspects of the subject, making Intimate Partner Violence not only a first-rate textbook but also a great resource for those on the front lines in all fields that respond to domestic violence, the most serious and complex social challenge that we face.

--Eugene Hyman, Santa Clara University School of Law, former Judge of the Superior Court in Santa Clara County

Intimate Partner Violence is a masterful, experience-based and crystal-clear condensation of knowledge about domestic violence and how to stop it. The product of a unique collaboration between a top-flight researcher and a survivor and pioneer in our advocacy movement, the book exposes common myths about perpetrators and victims and offers practitioners, survivors and policy makers step-by-step guidance on how to build much needed bridges to safety, real accountability, dignity and the full equality without which our families and communities cannot thrive.

--Evan Stark, Ph.D, MSW, Professor Emeritus, Rutgers University
