  1. New - Domestic Violence in Diverse Contexts

    Concentrating on the various forms of domestic abuse and its occurrence and manifestations within different contexts, this book argues that gender is centrally implicated in the unique factors that shape violence across all these areas. Exploring how domestic violence across varying contexts impacts on different women’s experiences and understandings of abuse, this innovative work draws on post-structural feminist theory and how these ideas view, and potentially allow, gendered explanations of domestic violence. Domestic Violence in Diverse Contexts is suitable for academics and researchers interested in issues around violence and gender.

  2. NEW - Routledge Handbook of Sexuality Studies in East Asia

    'At last, a dazzling and comprehensive collection that sets a new benchmark in East Asian studies. The international experts in this smart volume explore a range of significant topics, from sexual minorities to sexual politics, placing sexuality studies front and center on the Asian studies bookshelf. Pioneering, thought-provoking, and deeply knowledgeable.' – Laura Miller, University of Missouri-St. Louis, USA
