Summary

Family Violence: Legal, Medical, and Social Perspectives, Fourth Edition This comprehensive introduction to the study of family violence discusses the field from three perspectives-legal, medical, and social. Unlike other books in this field, Wallace includes separate chapters on specialized topics such as ritualistic abuse, gay and lesbian abuse, and victims' rights. The new Fourth Edition features in-depth coverage of spiritual abuse, family violence in the military, and spousal abuse by police officers.
