Boys who witness domestic violence are two times as likely to abuse their own partners and children when they become adults. Abuse, whether conducted by a man or a woman, touches every family on some level. Whether a mild disagreement took a wrong turn, or a young child witness her guardians striking one another, family violence leaves a lasting, powerful imprint. This guidebook shows readers that family abuse is a global issue, by presenting several internationally sourced essays. While the U.S. receives some coverage, readers will learn about the topic of violence in places such as Ireland, Australia, Tanzania, Vietnam, Scotland, Japan, Uganda, and Pakistan. This global survey will help readers to develop their own strong, intelligent opinions. Essay sources include The Economist, General Statistics Office of Vietnam, The World Health Organization, and Weill Medical College of Cornell University.
