Violent Betrayal: Partner Abuse in Lesbian Relationships

by Claire M. Renzetti - £48.99  Sage Publications (1992)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780803938892 | ISBN 10: 0803938896

Based on a nationwide study of violence in lesbian relationships, this comprehensive, accessible volume derives from a common theme expressed by the subjects: the sense of having been betrayed, first by their lovers, and subsequently by a lesbian community which tends to deny the problem when victims seek help.
 
Claire M. Renzetti skillfully addresses several central issues: consequences for victims, batterers and the community as a whole, and what we can learn about domestic violence in general by studying violence in lesbian relationships. The research offers a fresh look at domestic violence by examining the phenomenon of women as perpetrators of intimate violence against women, at the same time making a clear distinction between battering and self-defense. Students and professionals in victimology, gender studies, sociology, psychology, criminology, social work, clinical psychology, counseling, and family studies will not want to miss this brilliant work.
