"In the tradition of C. Wright Mills, DeKeseredy and Schwartz show that violence against women is not due to the pathology of selected individuals but rather is woven tightly into the very fabric of gender relations. Indeed, now in a mature stage of development, their male peer support theory provides both a compelling explanation for why women's victimization persists and a framework for illuminating realistic solutions to this disquieting social problem. Their volume is destined to be a contemporary criminological classic."
--Francis T. Cullen, Distinguished Research Professor, University of Cincinnati
"For two decades, Walter DeKeseredy and Martin Schwartz have mapped the distinctly social dynamics of men's violence against women, locating the source of this social problem not in individual psychopathology but as an expression of deeply embedded social dynamics among men. This welcome summary of their research makes these dynamics clear -- and thus points the way towards a collective accountability to end men's violence against women." --Michael Kimmel, SUNY Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Gender Studies
