In the early 1970s, the problem of abuse within the family unit began to surface on a large scale and 1975 was a particularly significant year for the recognition of interfamilial violence. This recognition provided the impetus for more concern and investigation of the issue and significant literature on family violence began to emerge during this period.
First published in 1984, this bibliography contains information published in English on domestic violence and abuse from 1960-1982. It is arranged alphabetically by author, or by the first significant word in the title if no author is given. A concise subject index and an author index follow the bibliography itself.
This book will be a valuable resource to those studying social work, health care, mental health, sociology, women’s studies and law.
