This is the textbook for my Family Violence class. It is very interesting to read, easy to follow and very informative. It explains violence in other countries and how the cycle occurs here in our great country. The textbook covers all areas of domestic violence and explains some new things as well. This textbook arrived on time and I could not believe the price.
