While men's violence to women is an everyday culturally supported activity, this reader demonstrates: that men's violence can be curtailed and that women and children can be assisted effectively; that state policies and provision can be improved; and that women can actively participate in the resolution of their difficulties. Bringing together new work and key papers Home Truths About Domestic Violence provides a comprehensive overview and up-to-date account of the progress so far, and identifies what still needs to be done. Areas covered include:
* womens experience of violence
* childrens experience of violence
* personal experiences of the justice system
* state policies on violence in the US and UK
* educational programmes and initiatives.
This substantial Reader makes a significant contribution to the understanding of domestic violence from both a policy and a practice perspective. Together with its companion volume Home Truths About Child Sexual Abuse it provides an in-depth resource for a wide range of teachers, students and professionals, highlighting the diverse and complex dimensions of the problem of domestic violence.

"In this volume, the authors state that although domestic violence against women is an everyday occurrence supported by the status quo culture, it can be stopped. Additionally, the authors insist that women and children in these situations can be effectively assisted, state policies can be improved, and women can actively participate in the resolution of their abusive situations. The book, covers women and children's personal experience of violence and the justice system, state policies on domestic violence in the United States and the United Kingdom, and educational programs and initiatives aimed at this problem.." -Journal of Social Work Education, Vol. 37.3
