Samenvatting

This groundbreaking anthology reorients the field of domestic violence research by bringing long-overdue attention to the structural forms of oppression in communities marginalized by race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, or social class. Reprints of the most influential recent work in the field as well as more than a dozen newly commissioned essays explore theoretical issues, current research, service provision, and activism among Latinos, African Americans, Asian Americans, Muslim Americans, Jewish Americans, and lesbians. The volume rejects simplistic analyses of the role of culture in domestic violence by elucidating the support systems available to battered women within different cultures, while at the same time addressing the distinct problems generated by that culture. Together, the essays pose a compelling challenge to stereotypical images of battered women that are racist, homophobic, and xenophobic. The most up-to-date and comprehensive picture of domestic violence available, this anthology is an essential text for courses in sociology, criminology, social work, and women's studies. Beyond the classroom, it provides critical information and resources for professionals working in domestic violence services, advocacy, social work, and law enforcement.

Recensie(s)

By bringing together these writings, Natalie Sokoloff has exposed the inherent biases that have influenced so much of the mainstream work to end violence against women. The authors do not avoid discussion of racism within organizations, the heterosexist assumptions that permeate many approaches, or the conservative and class-based strategies that have come to be accepted as model interventions.... It is rare to read such thoughtful analyses of gender violence that include ample attention to other vulnerabilities in addition to gender oppression.--from the foreword by Beth E. Richie
