Using both qualitative and quantitative data and methodologies, Restorative Justice for Domestic Violence Victims illuminates the complex nature of intimate partner violence and of its victims' lives. In the process, Marilyn Fernandez makes a convincing case for introducing restorative justice principled programs in the domestic violence arena and pushes the boundaries of existing theoretical and service models for domestic violence.
Marilyn Fernandez is professor of sociology at Santa Clara University.
