Interconnecting the Violences of Men: Continuities and Intersections in Research, Policy and Activism

Kate Seymour

This book aims to expand and enrich understandings of violences by focusing on gendered continuities, interconnections and intersections across multiple forms and manifestations of men's violence. In actively countering, both, the compartmentalisation of studies of violence by 'type' and form, and the tendency to conceptualise violence narrowly, it aims to flesh out - not delimit - understandings of violence.

Bringing together cross-disciplinary, indeed transdisciplinary, perspectives, this book addresses how - what are often seen as - specific and separate violences connect closely and intricately with wider understandings of violence, how there are gendered continuities between violences, and how gendered violences take many forms and manifestations and are themselves intersectional. Grounded by the recognition that violence is, itself, a form of inequality, the contributors to this volume traverse the intersectional complexities across, both, experiences of violent inequality, and what is seen to 'count' as violence.

The international scope of this book will be of interest to students and academics across many fields including sociology, criminology, psychology, social work, politics, gender studies, child and youth studies, military and peace studies, environmental studies, and colonial studies, as well as practitioners, activists and policy makers engaged in violence prevention.
