About this product
- DescriptionAddressing the problem of men's violence to kwn women, this book considers the scale of, and critically reviews the theoretical frameworks used to explain this violence. From the perspective of 'critical studies on men', Jeff Hearn discusses issues, challenges and possible research methods for those researching violence. He draws on extensive research to analyze the various ways in which men describe, deny, justify and excuse their violence, and considers the complex interaction between doing violence and talking about violence. The book concludes with a summary of the key issues for theory, politics, policy and practice.
