Reviews

Kathleen Parker, "National Review Online"
"Important new findings..."Violent Partners" tackles the myths of domestic violence and suggests new ways of dealing with the problem... Mills proposes a broad, systemic approach to domestic violence that includes counseling and at least the option of restorative, rather than punitive, justice."

Desmond M Tutu Archbishop Emeritus
"Amazing - I found this book so profound, so spiritual. Read it and apply it."


Hon. Paul G. Cassell, former U.S. District Court Judge; Professor of Law and crime victims' advocate at the S.J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah
""Violent Partners" proposes real-world solutions to one of the most serious social problems facing America."

Kay Pranis, Peacemaking Circle Trainer and Facilitator
"Tears flow as I absorb the gift of Linda Mills's narrative and feel the possibilities of shifting our cultural addiction to violence."


Hon. Dennis Davis, Judge of the High Court, Cape Town, South Africa
"Mills has written a book that speaks to all concerned with intimate violence. Her proposals for change transcend the boundaries of the United States. "Violent Partners" compellingly shows that violence must be dealt with by way of reconstruction of community, engagement with the past lives of the victims and perpetrators and by focusing on the manner in which the past can become the source of energy for a transformed future....a wonderful exposition of the personal and the political."

Heather Strang, Director, Centre for Restorative Justice, Australian National University
"Linda Mills courageously challenges the conventional wisdoms around domestic violence and presents a new vision for ending the cycle of abuse."


Adrian Nicole LeBlanc, author of "Random Family"
"In "Violent Partners," Linda Mills continues to ask dangerous questions--about women's propensity to violence; about the murky powers stirring partnership; about the ways in which the flaws and failures of the women's movement's response may have "unintentionally" sustained some of our collective risk. In addition, she bravely confronts her own complicity in the violence that has shaped her life."

Duncan Lindsey, Professor of Social Welfare, UCLA; Editor in Chief, "Children and Youth Services Review"
""Violent Partners" engages the reader in a beautifully written text that is both deeply personal and connected to the latest empirical research...This is clearly the most important book on domestic violence to appear in the last decade."


"Publishers Weekly"
"In this scrupulously researched book, Mills uses her own experience in a violent relationship and other case studies as she examines the sources of domestic violence, looks at microscopically at the complex dynamics between various victims and their abusers and explores new treatments that are proving successful."

"Library Journal "
"The ideas are highly controversial, yet this book is authoritative, reasonable, and easy to grasp."


Avital Ronell, author of "Crack Wars" and "The Telephone Book"
"Disturbingly lucid, pertinent and crucial, "Violent Partners" is written with an unprecedented honesty, and scrambles the master codes by which we have traditionally identified perpetrators and victims. Linda Mills provides the only reliable road map to transforming the pervasive pull of abuse in our society."

Lord Harry Woolf of Barnes, formerly Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales
"This is a thoughtful and well considered work dealing with the problems created by violent partners. It innovatively draws attention to what may be able to be achieved by adopting a restorative approach. It deserves careful attention."


Elizabeth Swados, author of "My Depression"
"Linda Mills is courageous. She manages to wake you up and encourage you to think about abuse in a different way. She dares to confront our understandings of violence in ways that challenge everyone--the victim, the victimizer, the enabler, and even the counselor. A combination of guts, fury, truth, introspection, well chosen anecdotes, surprising insights and a tremendous commitment to political and social justice makes "Violent Partners" unique. It can be a tremendous catalyst for change."

Steven Englund, author of "Man Slaughter," NYU Distinguished Professor, American University of Paris
"Linda Mills draws on deep wells of personal experience to overturn accepted notions concerning intimate abuse. She explores provocative new understandings of the red hot topic of abuse between the sexes. "Violent Partners" is a must read for anyone interested in this vital subject."


Lawrence W. Sherman, Wolfson Professor of Criminology, Cambridge University
"Linda Mills is the indispensable guide to solving the problems of domestic violence. No one can enter the policy debate on these issues in an informed way without reading her eye-opening and rigorous analyses."
