When most people think of domestic violence, images of battered women or abused children come to mind. But there is another side to this issue that is not as familiar--abused men. This unique book is the first to comprehensively examine this important but neglected social issue. Already praised by a diverse spectrum of readers--from "Dear Abby's" Abigail Van Buren, to the nation's leading domestic violence researcher, to those in law enforcement and counseling--this work is sure to spark controversy and discussion. It offers gripping, emotional stories, self-help for victims, and provocative insight into public issues, and provides a basic reference source for professionals. Abused Men presents practical solutions for reducing domestic violence, whether its victims are male or female.

Book News
The author examines domestic violence perpetrated by women on men, arguing that the statistics show that women are every bit as violent toward men as men are toward women. He recounts the stories of abused men and presents research to show why so little is known about female-on-male violence. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
