Frieze (psychology, women's studies, University of Pittsburgh) overviews the large body of empirical research on violence in relationships and interprets this data in the context of theoretical work on aggression and the causes of personal violence. Chapters cover learning and the environment in violence and aggression, biological factors, reactions to victimization, battered women, sexual assault, and child abuse. Chapter summaries, study questions, and lists of related Web sites are included. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
