'Perpetrators of IPSV is an important and valuable contribution to our understanding of this widespread, yet understudied, form of violence. Noted scholars, practitioners and survivors offer new research as well as extensive intervention and prevention recommendations. This volume will prove most useful for all of us working to end sexual violence.' - Kersti Yllo, Wheaton College, U.S.A 'The subjects of this comprehensive, well-researched, and disturbing collection are the men who have sexually assaulted a partner and the effects on the women and children who are victimized by them. The book is long overdue, much needed, and path-breaking.' - Evan Stark, Rutgers University, U.S.A 'McOrmond-Plummer, Easteal and Levy-Peck have made a critical contribution to the field of violence against women with this multi-disciplinary book that addresses a highly understudied phenomena. For far too long there has been a dearth of information about men who sexually abuse their intimate partners. This important book assembles leading experts from a variety of disciplines to address this void in an important way. For those who are working in the community with perpetrators, those working with women who have been victimized by their partners and others committed to ending violence against women, this book is essential reading. This book contributes in an important way to furthering our understanding of IPSV as 'real rape' with very real consequences for society and most importantly, the lives of women who are victimized by their partners.' - Raquel Bergen, Saint Joseph's University, U.S.A
