Authors: John Simister (Economics Department, MMU Business School, U K) 
Book Description:
This book analyses domestic violence against women, inflicted by the woman’s husband or cohabiting partner. The main focus is on physical violence and sexual and emotional violence is also dicussed. The term used to describe such violence is ”Gender Based Violence” (GBV). GBV is a problem in every country; in the world as a whole, there may be over a billion women who have experienced domestic violence from their husband or male partner. For many women, such violence is a regular occurrence, and is seen as normal by many women and men. This book uses scientific data collected by household surveys, and from crime statistics; it investigates not only the prevalence of violence, but also attitudes to such violence – the extent to which a woman, and/or her partner, consider domestic violence against women to be acceptable or even appropriate in certain circumstances.
