How times have changed! Fifteen years ago, intimate partner abuse was not an issue discussed in medical circles. Indeed, researchers in this field were often vilified and taken to task on publication of studies exposing the prevalence of this issue and the resultant morbidity associated with it. By contrast, today we see government advertisements on television telling us that “Australia says ‘No’” to domestic violence. Health professionals have a worthy resource in this book edited by Gwenneth Roberts and Kelsey Hegarty from Australia and Gene Feder from the United Kingdom.
