Addressing the problem of men's violence to known women, this book considers the scale of, and critically reviews the theoretical frameworks used to explain this violence.


From the perspective of `critical studies on men', Jeff Hearn discusses issues, challenges and possible research methods for those researching violence.

The book concludes with a summary of the key issues for theory, politics, policy and practice.
