The Third Edition of the comprehensive Sourcebook on Violence Against Women by Claire M. Renzetti, Jeffrey L.

The book’s 15 chapters are divided into three parts: theoretical and methodological issues in researching violence against women; types of violence against women; and, new to this edition, programs that work. Featuring new chapters, pedagogy, sections on controversies in the field, and autobiographical essays by leaders in grassroots anti-violence work, the Third Edition has been designed to encourage discussion and debate, to address issues of diversity and cultural contexts, and to examine inequalities of race and ethnicity, social class, physical ability, sexual orientation, and geographic location.

Minutiös und doch einfühlsam skizziert er die Ereignisse, die eine ganze Gesellschaft an der Frage nach Recht und Unrecht, Wahrheit und Lüge verzweifeln lassen, er spricht mit den Beschuldigten und den Opfern und schildert packend, wie schmerzhaft die Suche nach Gerechtigkeit und Sühne bei Gericht sein kann.

Die Supermacht USA befindet sich in einer tiefen Identitätskrise. Einst berühmt für ihre pragmatische Kompromissbereitschaft stehen sich Republikaner und Demokraten unversöhnlich gegenüber, gewinnen ehemals politische Randgruppen wie die Tea Party enormen politischen und gesellschaftlichen Einfluss. Das Land radikalisiert sich und die weiße männliche Bevölkerung spielt dabei eine entscheidende Rolle. Wer sind die zornigen weißen Amerikaner, die ihren "Way of Life" so gefährdet sehen, dass sie zum radikalen Widerstand gegen jeden bereit sind, der ihre Anschauungen nicht teilt? Woher rührt die Wut auf Frauenemanzipation und Immigranten, auf Farbige und Homosexuelle, auf die Gleichstellung der Geschlechter und generell auf "die im Weißen Haus"? Dieses Buch zeichnet das beklemmende Porträt einer vorrangig männlichen Bewegung, deren Angst vor dem eigenen Bedeutungsverlust, vor dem Verlust amerikanischer Männlichkeit und Dominanz nicht nur die kommenden Präsidentschaftswahlen bestimmen wird, sondern darüber hinaus auch die amerikanische Außenpolitik - also uns.

Intervention for men who batter

Author: Jeffrey L. Edleson
Publisher: Sage Publications, Inc
ISBN: 0803942656
Release Date: 1992
Genre: Family & Relationships

Too often, practitioners go about their work without a comprehensive and integrated understanding of how their work can enhance and coordinate with the work of others. This comprehensive volume provides a concise overview for practitioners of current theory and intervention. The authors present the multiple factors (individual and social-cultural) that contribute to the onset and continuation of domestic violence and provide an ecological approach to working with men who batter. Major themes focus on criteria for successful intervention: men's treatment groups, working with their families, and working within the criminal justice system. Chapters describe cognitive and behavioral-based treatment procedures and practical issues involved in conducting couple intervention. Moreover, the ecological approach taken in this volume calls for interventions at multiple levels of social organization, including criminal-justice interventions which have only recently been established in this country. Sensitivity to ethnic and cultural differences is also discussed. Intervention for Men Who Batter is aimed at practitioners and policy makers who seek an overall framework and set of intervention models to draw upon when designing new efforts in their own communities. Students of victimology, social work, clinical psychology, criminology, sociology, gender studies, and family studies will also find this an invaluable resource. "In Intervention for Men who Batter, Drs. Edleson and Tolman provide practitioners and policymakers with a comprehensive, multisystem framework for understanding the causes and consequences of woman abuse and empirically based intervention strategies to treat it. . . . The authors have written a comprehensive overview of the male battering literature which they communicate in a clear, well-organized way. I would recommend this book highly . . . as a beginning foray into the male battering literature, particularly those workers who are interested in strengthening their group work skills. The more sophisticated social worker will find the bibliography helpful for referencing the empirical and theoretical studies that provide the foundation that this important body of work is based upon." --Andrew W. Safyer, Boston University "The authors show all the individual and social-cultural factors that contribute to and support men who batter their intimate partners. They then explain what is needed to stop the abuse, including community intervention projects. The book presents cutting-edge ideas." --The Women's Advocate "I have now obtained your book and found it very useful--we are recommending it to students. Congratulations on a clear, concise, useful and thoughtful summary." --Gabrielle Maxwell, Office of the Commissioner for Children Wellington, New Zealand ABOUT THE SERIES: "A project with an exciting blend of scholarship and practical expertise." --David Finkelhor, University of New Hampshire

The Road

Author: Jack London
Publisher: Rutgers University Press
ISBN: 9780813540122
Release Date: 2006-05-03
Genre: Literary Criticism

In 1894, eighteen-year-old Jack London quit his job shoveling coal, hopped a freight train, and left California on the first leg of a ten thousand-mile odyssey. His adventure was an exaggerated version of the unemployed migrations made by millions of boys, men, and a few women during the original “great depression” of the 1890s. By taking to the road, young wayfarers like London forged a vast hobo subculture that was both a product of the new urban industrial order and a challenge to it. As London’s experience suggests, this hobo world was born of equal parts desperation and fascination. “I went on ‘The Road,’” he writes, “because I couldn't keep away from it . . . because I was so made that I couldn’t work all my life on ‘one same shift’; because—well, just because it was easier to than not to.” The best stories that London wrote about his hoboing days can be found in The Road, a collection of nine essays with accompanying illustrations, most of which originally appeared in Cosmopolitan magazine between 1907 and 1908. His virile persona spoke to white middle-class readers who vicariously escaped their desk-bound lives and followed London down the hobo trail. The zest and humor of his tales, as Todd DePastino explains in his lucid introduction, often obscure their depth and complexity. The Road is as much a commentary on London’s disillusionment with wealth, celebrity, and the literary marketplace as it is a picaresque memoir of his youth.
