Abuse and Victimization across the Life Span

Edited by Martha B. Straus

Reviews

A conspicuously readable, interesting, and well-written account of the field of abuse and victimization with emphasis on specific problems as they develop. This book would be of assistance..to anyone dealing with abuse and victimization in a society where such behaviors are no longer unusual.

- American Journal of Psychiatry

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.

- Contemporary Psychology

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.
