A state-of-the-art, well-referenced, and highly research-oriented collection of critical information written from a life span perspective.. This is a text that delivers exactly what its title suggests, discussing, reviewing, describing, and proscribing abuse and victimization in terms of the life span. It examines the effects of family violence from infancy to late adulthood and explains the various critical considerations (psychological, physical, intellectual, and moral) that are developmentally important.. Straus can be credited with excellent editorial skills as well as discrimination in her fine choice of exceptionally literate authors.
Contains a broad spectrum of information on abuse and victimization, and its excellent bibliography will provide readers interested in the subject with sources of further reading and research.
