Why do men batter their wives? How do women define their experiences of violence? Is wife abuse related to child abuse? How do medical authorities react to wife abuse? This unique volume brings together well-known academics, activists and clinicians who approach these questions from a distinctly feminist perspective. They critically analyze lay and academic theories of wife abuse in order to develop theories that more accurately reflect the experiences of women.
