Violence, including intimate partner violence, is a leading cause of death, disability, and hospitalization in the United States and other regions worldwide. Despite growing awareness, the numbers of reported and unreported incidents continue to rise. Drawing on the contributions of criminal justice practitioners and academic theorists who bring sober insight to a highly charged issue, The War Against Domestic Violence offers a comprehensive, interdisciplinary study of this phenomenon. Topics include: Domestic violence in Caucasian, Latino, African-American, Asian, Native American, and Sub-Saharan African cultures Child abuse and the response of child welfare agencies The connection between domestic violence and homelessness and drug abuse Domestic violence in gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons Spousal violence among police officers The history of domestic violence policy Orders of protection Prosecuting and defending those charged with domestic violence Court-ordered treatment and community supervision of domestic violence offenders Creating campaigns for domestic violence prevention The book provides rare glimpses of topics inadequately covered in the literature, allowing readers to understand and appreciate the complexity of domestic violence while also promoting a variety of effective strategies to combat its continued rise. The multi-layered approach of this volume and the input from the expert contributors from varied backgrounds are destined to stimulate the interest of a growing and diverse audience. Lee Ross recently appeared on UCF Profiles to discuss why some break the law and others with similar backgrounds do not.
