Violence, Abuse and Neglect provides a systematic exposition of the national problem of domestic violence and how public and private agencies have dealt with it. Looking at the four major types of domestic violence (child, spouse, adolescent and elder) and placing domestic violence in the context of violence in the larger American society, Utech's book works well in sociology, criminal justice, social work, psychology and healthcare.
