Product Description


"The first comprehensive review of research on violence against women to have been produced in Canada. It will be of interest to both researchers and students for its depth, scope, and readability." --Diane Crocker, Saint Mary's University

"The strength of the [book] lies in its overview of research from such varied directions. Its organization of that research into areas of concern and the complete review of both domestic violence and sexual assault is critical in this climate where sexual assault is rarely given air time." --Helen Eaton-Ramirez, Wilfrid Laurier University

Professor Holly Johnson is an associate professor in the Department of Criminology at the University of Ottawa. Her primary research interests include sexual violence and intimate partner violence. Holly was principal investigator of Statistics Canada's first national survey on violence against women and is currently a coordinator of the International Violence Against Women Survey. Holly continues to be involved in many national and international networks aimed at preventing violence against women and improving criminal justice and societal responses to these crimes. Professor Myrna Dawson joined the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at the University of Guelph in 2003. Widely published, her broad research interests include trends in and characteristics of lethal and non-lethal violence, with a particular focus on intimate partner violence as well as social and legal responses to violent victimization in Canadian society.
