2017 Routlege Press Edited by Louise McOrmond-Plummer, Jennifer Y. Levy-Peck, Patricia Easteal



This new book distills the knowledge that exists about perpetrators of IPSV. It includes chapters by authors who have worked directly with IPSV perpetrators and covers important subjects such as addressing IPSV in batterer groups, police management strategies, the danger of IPSV to children, the different types of violence perpetrators use, and prevention approaches for young people. There is also still a widely held view that rapists are strangers in alleyways. This book is intended to educate professionals about who is a perpetrator, as well as to highlight the very real danger these perpetrators represent, including a heightened risk of lethality.

Rus Ervin Funk co-wrote two chapters:

“The Role of Adult Pornography in Intimate Partner sexual Violence Perpetrators’ Offending” (with Dr. Walter S. DeKeseredy).

“Addressing & Combatting Intimate Partner Sexual Violence” (with Lundy Bancroft).
