Home Catherine Anderson New Leaf. Master storyteller Anderson has skillfully penned the heart-wrenching story of domestic abuse and its aftermath. Watching slender hands slide provocatively over ample breasts and rotating hips might have given him an instant hard-on if snow hadn’t been pelting him in the face. Come to think about it, the snow stinging his che.

She then continued: 'Domestic violence describes ANY violence or abuse that is used by someone to control or obtain power over their partner. It can include physical, sexual, psychological, verbal, emotional and financial abuse. Brave: She detailed own experience of domestic abuse with a harrowing photo that showed her bruised shoulder. If you ALTER your behaviour because you are FRIGHTENED of how your partner will react, you are being abused. The bruises go - but psychological scarring remains.

Domestic violence has a number of dimensions .

Domestic violence has a number of dimensions: mode-physical, psychological, sexual and/or social. frequency-on/off, occasional, chronic. It is often used because it is covert, leaves no visible scars, and can be done with a smile. It destroys or damages the target's reputation and ruins the target's relationships: It is the outcome of fear. In the United States, women are significantly more like to experience intimate partner violence than men, and were also significantly more likely than men to be injured during an intimate partner assault. While women are often thought of as the victims of domestic violence, both children and men can also be victimized by abuse.

Domestic violence (also named domestic abuse or family violence) is violence or other abuse by one person against another in a domestic setting, such as in marriage or cohabitation. It may be termed intimate partner violence when committed by a spouse or partner in an intimate relationship against the other spouse or partner, and can take place in heterosexual or same-sex relationships, or between former spouses or partners

A shame this book is out of print. It's a shame it's still so relevant today.Photographer Vera Anderson provides clear, black and white photos, and short (less than a page) written portraits of about 50 women survivors of violence at the hands of their male partners.The women come from all walks of life and have endured everything from verbal abuse to physical torture and mistreatment by the legal system that is supposed to be helping them.

The women are not bruised here (different from the als-excellent book Living with the Enemy.

I greatly appreciate how the women in this book describe the ways in which their lives were restricted by the men who abused them--not simply the blows they endured. This book drives home that women who endure battering are--indeed--like all other women. I totally recommend this book and I hope Ms. Anderson will be invited to do an updated version although--alas!--I'm not sure how much has changed.

This book is excellent in portrayal of domestic violence, and through pictures, one realises that domestic violence affects everyone, not simply women. For example, the narrative by the two children in the book can break anyone's heart--particularly for those who have actually experienced the similar traumatic experience like myself. The narratives by the different women are all very touching, and this book can be read and SEEN by everyone, with no selectiveness of the audience. For those working as domestic violence counselors, lawyers, criminologists, law enforcement officials, etc., they should all examine this book to understand the impact of domestic violence within their community. Overall, this book is excellent!

This is a amazing book about several women and life stories of domestic violence abuse. This is a good book to us when you are doing domestic violence counseling group activities. It is a very touching and meaningful book. Melissa Hess

The book includes interviews that tell of abuse stomping down avenues and alleyways, terrorizing woman regardless of class, race, religion or age. Hard words and Harsh contrast link victims of abuse to common ground. Vera Anderson teaches us, through the eye of her camera and poignant interviews, that we must open our eyes to the possibility of abusive situations no matter what woman we are gazing at. It also includes a suggested reading list and contact information for those seeking help.
Mandy Baker was sexually abused when she was eight. No one explained to her what had happened, and she was forbidden to talk about that night. Now, eight years later, Mandy is experiencing problems that she cannot solve on her own. She is constantly nauseous, especially around boys. She cannot participate in a romantic relationship, and it is impossible for her to communicate with her family. Increasingly confused by so many conflicting emotions, the girl finally seeks help. When she finds the courage to express what she has held inside for so long, her walls of silence are broken down.
Anderson is a photojournalist who escaped an abusive marriage. Her portraits are of women whose looks are remarkable for their familiarity. They are people we see every day, gazing directly at the camera, indistinguishable in their appearance from others in the community; but their stories, briefly told, speak volumes.

I'm a married male with two sons, and I found this book to be amazing. Since domestic violence is more often (and more lethally) perpetrated by males (like it or not, I have to be honest about what's happening), that means the emphasis of "helping books" is going to be toward women. While I'd like to see more books oriented toward males as victims, that should NOT discount the significance and quality of books that reflect the real-life realities of mens' violence against women. And since this book exists to represent true portraits, I can't help but be amazed with what it reveales.
Instead of pleading for less "us-and-them" dynamics in books that encompass what's actually "us-and-them" forms of violence, I'd like to see more books that reach out to women positively as they escape violence, and more books that assist us men in coping with the violence that we have the choice and power to end, with help.
Instead of faulting this book because of what it omits, I'd suggest that this book is valuable, and that the subsequent review below mine should judge this book on its inherent merits, and then simply plead a case for *additional* books that cover the topics he'd like to see, as well. It is not the intent of this book to span the breadth of the domestic violence issue, only to demonstrate what kinds of women experience it commonly.

This is a touching, meaningful, and an innovative way to break down the denial concealing domestic violence in this country. In this work, Anderson utilizes interviews and photographs of 30+ women who are survivors of domestic violence. Questions like, "Why would a woman stay in a violent relationship?" and "Couldn't she tell before she married him that he was abusive?" are answered by the women without the question being asked. Second, the book can be used by therapists to help clients look past their own denial regarding their life experiences and find similarities between themselves and the women presented in this book. The last positive attribute to be mentioned here is Anderson's ability to capture the "face" of domestic violence. If one ever thought he or she could determine whether anyone else "looked" like a battered woman, one may have to reconsider his/her position. This book shows that domestic violence can happen to anyone... and it does. Domestic violence happens in all income brackets, racial and/or cultural groups, and in heterosexual and homosexual relationships.
