Family Violence

A Canadian Introduction

by Ann Duffy and Julianne Momirov

Family Violence is an unparalleled aid to understanding the nature and dimensions of this burgeoning social problem.

In this first Canadian book to deal comprehensively with the subject of family violence, sociologists Ann Duffy and Julianne Momirov offer a feminist analysis. Their discussion covers the different forms that abuse can take, and the various family members who can be affected; it looks at the social and historical roots of family violence and examines the effects of the added stress on families during the recent economic downturn.
