Summary

The historical context of family violence is explored, as well as the various forms of violence, their prevalence in specific stages of life, and responses to family violence made by the criminal justice system and other agencies. The linkage among child abuse, partner violence, and elder abuse is scrutinized, and the usefulness of the life-course approach is couched in terms of its potential effect on policy implications; research methods that recognize the importance of life stages, trajectories, and transitions; and crime causation theories that can be enhanced by incorporating the life-course perspective. The book concludes with recommendations for future research and policy, and predictions regarding the future of family violence in the United States.
