Summary "A welcome and comprehensive collection of excellent studies on the politics of domestic violence. ... These scholars are among the best writing on the topic, and they provide nuanced, sophisticated accounts."--Nanette Funk, City University of New York, Brooklyn College.
"An interesting and important book ... with a rare combination of rigor and nuance."--S. Laurel Weldon, author of Protest, Policy, and the Problem of Violence Against Women: A Cross-National Comparison.
Domestic violence has emerged as a significant public policy issue of transnational character in the postcommunist era in Europe and Eurasia, as global forces have interacted with the agendas of governments, local and international women's groups, and human rights activists. The result of extensive collaboration among scholars and activist-practitioners--many from postcommunist countries--this volume examines the development of state policies, changes in public perceptions, and the interaction of national and international politics. --Book Jacket.
