Abusive Endings: Separation and Divorce Violence against Women, by Walter DeKeseredy
We have not read this book but we know it would be good because Walter DeKeseredy is a highly respected social scientist in the field of domestic abuse.
Here is the blurb:
Abusive Endings offers a thorough analysis of the social-science literature on one of the most significant threats to the health and well-being of women today—abuse at the hands of their male partners. The authors provide a moving description of why and how men abuse women in myriad ways during and after a separation or divorce. The material is punctuated with the stories and voices of both perpetrators and survivors of abuse, as told to the authors over many years of fieldwork.
Written in a highly readable fashion, this book will be a useful resource for researchers, practitioners, activists, and policy makers.
The book came out in May 2017. We hope it gets a wide reading among policy makers. We hope it leads to changes in the system and legislation which will make it safer for victims to leave abusers.
The blurb does not say that the book is written for victims, but if any victims read it we would love to know their view of the book.
