My Partner, My Enemy : An Unflinching View of Domestic Violence and New Ways to Protect Victims Hardback

Description

The problem of domestic violence and partner abuse knows no bounds, can affect anyone, and when kept silent and in the dark can become deadly.

Hon. John Leventhal presided over the Brooklyn Felony Domestic Violence Court, the first felony domestic violence part in the nation, since it opened in June 1996 until he was elevated to the appellate court January 2008.

While domestic violence has greater social and legal visibility today then it did in the past, the problem still remains a massive and ongoing crisis.

My Partner, My Enemy brings truth and reality to a matter that desperately needs to be addressed.

So how do we help reduce and eliminate intimate partner abuse, especially when the public knows so little and much goes unreported?

By exploring the severity of the problem through true case studies of violent and abusive men, and their motivations, Leventhal successfully brings to light the problem and ways to help.
