Addressing the problem of men's violence to known 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.

'This book can be read in many different ways, for example as a research report, a discussion of research methods, an example of deconstructing interview accounts, a theoretical debate on men's violence, or a series of recommendations on professional practice. It provides a good example of how theory, empirical research and professional practice can be integrated and will hopefully encourage individual practitioners and agencies to develop more proactive responses to violence by men to known women' - British Journal of Social Work 'This is a highly readable and informative text. Men's violence towards women remains a pressing issue and texts such as this, which deconstruct men's accounts of violence and consider the links between articulating and doing violence are, therefore, highly valuable.' - Sociology
