Editorial Reviews

"Mildred Pagelow's Family Violence ... is a liberal rather than radical book. Pagelow believes that experts on family violence must have an underlying faith in the goodness of people' since there will always be a majority of people who struggle against violence.'... Her book is encyclopedic in its coverage, presenting the data on the extent of the problem of family violence, various perspectives and explanations for family violence, child abuse and neglect, spouse abuse, other kinds of abuse, including children abusing other children and abuse of elderly parents.... The book contains good critiques of the cycle of violence' theory and of the alleged problem of the battered husband. It shows a rare understanding of the structural conditions leading to child neglect and abuse...[it] is invaluable for practitioners in the fields of the family and of violence."-Women's Review of Books
