What Trouble I Have Seen by David Peterson del Mar
Book DescriptionIn this history and interdisciplinary study of violence toward wives in America, David Peterson del Mar reflects on the changes in American society that have affected violence: wife-beating was quietly condoned until the spread of an ethos of self-restraint in the late 19th century; the practice increased with a vengeance with the florescence of expressive individualism during the 20th century. The text offers a testimony to the impact of social trends on the most private arrangements and to the resilience of women subject to a seemingly timeless crime.
