Summary
When most people think of domestic violence, images of battered women or abused children come to mind. But there is another side to this issue that is not as familiar - abused men. This unique book is the first to comprehensively examine this important but neglected social issue. Author Philip Cook directly challenges common assumptions about how men and women behave in society. Already praised by a diverse spectrum of readers - from "Dear Abby's" Abigail Van Buren, to the nation's leading domestic violence researcher, to those in law enforcement and counseling - this work is sure to spark controversy and discussion. It offers gripping, emotional stories, self-help for victims, provocative insight into public issues, and presents a practical approach for reducing domestic violence
