Violence in families and intimate relationships affects a significant proportion of the populationa€”from very young children to the elderlya€”with far-reaching and often devastating consequences. Cruel but Not Unusual draws on the expertise of scholars and practitioners to present readers with the latest research and thinking about the history, conditions, and impact of violence in these contexts. For this new edition, chapters have been updated to reflect changes in data and legislation. New chapters include an examination of trauma from a neurobiological perspective; a critical analysis of the a€œgender symmetry debate, a€ a debate that questions the gendered nature of intimate violence; and an essay on the history and evolution of the womena€™s movement dedicated to addressing violence against women, which advances theoretical developments that remind readers of the breadth of inclusivity that should be at the heart of working in this field.Crime clas- sification manual: A standard system for investigating and classifying violent crimes. ...
