Summary
Ask men and women around the world to define and give examples of abuse in families and they give a wide range of responses. What aspects of cultural and historical experience contribute to differences and similarities in the perspectives on family violence held by citizens of different countries? This is one of the questions addressed in this book, in which definitions and examples of abuse from men and women from every continent and a very diverse set of backgrounds are considered. It also provides information on the extent to which family violence is a recognized problem in each country, any research findings available on different forms of family violence, and information on governmental responses to family violence. Finally, the value of an international human rights approach to abuse and violence in families is considered. The book presents an unparalleled international coverage, addressing all forms of family violence in Australia and at least two countries from every other continent. Utilizing a conceptually sophisticated approach, the conceptual model used provides a well-articulated, integrative framework that can encompass perspectives and behaviors from diverse countries and cultures. Included in the model is an explanation of implicit theories of violence and abuse--the ones ordinary people have--and an explanation of a cognitive ecological approach to understanding violence and abuse in families. Following the first examples of definitions of abuse from each country's respondents, each chapter begins by describing the cultural context in which family violence and abuse take place. These sections emphasize the role of women and children in the country. Providing amultitude of voices, each chapter includes fascinating and often dramatic definitions and examples of abuse from ordinary citizens of the country. The concluding chapter has two excellent features: it elaborates on the appropriateness of a human rights approach in addressing family violence cross-nationally and cross-culturally; and provides an excellent integration of much of the material from the previous chapters
