What is Communism if not a history or controlling (and possibly stalking if we include surveillance). When people think they’re in love, they’re totally happy for things to go really fast, and some of those relationships will be OK. The hardest part, after reading this book, is knowing how to effectively intervene – from legal or personal perspectives.

But we know we’ve got an adversarial system so we need to be able to circumvent some of the problems it raises. But I would say the relationship won’t just be pushed along at a speed but also with all of these possessive things going on like pronounced jealousy. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. If you don't believe that feminism is still needed in this day and age, please, I urge you to read this book. The reality is that they are (justifiably) afraid that leaving is likely to be more dangerous than staying.she just provides answers as to how to recognize and stop these crimes before they become homicides.

She was very frightened, and for good reason, but she had also had all of her choices taken away as well. Jane Monkton-Smith takes us through the eight stages that an abuser will follow should the worst happen, but of course there are many more who make journeys along, or around, the earlier stages.The stories in the book will stay with you, and will make you rethink how these situations are dealt with, from law enforcement to family court.

She has authored a new model for understanding and assessing risk of homicide in cases where there is domestic abuse. Things would've got a lot worse if not for the closeness of my family and the fact that he was unable to stay here for more than six months. Learning to look for concerning behaviours and identify each of the 8 stages was both reassuring and concerning in equal measure. I was intrigued to understand and read more about this from a level-headed, non-dramatised perspective. Drawing on disciplines including psychology, sociology and law, she talks to victims, their families and killers, putting together pieces to the puzzle of how these relationships can end in murder and bringing to light the reasons why - for so many of us - there is no such thing as the safety of one's own home.

The clues are very often there in what the person says about themselves and maybe more importantly what other people say about them.

she never pretends to be able to explain why these perpetrators end up becoming the people they are though, and she’s very frank about that.It is much more rare for women to be perpetrators of domestic violence and this is covered hugely in this book, as well as backed up by statistics. It describes how perpetrators establish and maintain control through fear and routines, some of which may seem innocuous. A former police officer, she is professor of public protection at the University of Gloucestershire, and is recognised for her groundbreaking work on coercive control and stalking.
