Item Description...
Thanks to the Simpson case, domestic violence is no longer a dirty little secret. It remains, however, a devastating problem, and even more, a deadly killer. What is the answer? In 1994, Lou Brown, father of Nicole Brown Simpson, gave us one solution by establishing a foundation in his daughter's name that provides urgently needed funding to battered women's shelters across the country. Now he goes a step further, and with the help of a like-minded pastor and a legal activist who has been battered, offers hope and practical strategies for combating domestic violence. In a book whose first half is geared to support network people like himself--parents, families, friends, both personal and professional, and acquaintances who can and should make a difference--and whose second half is directed at the victims of abuse, here is an action plan for battered women and those around them.. This book offers a checklist for the victim of domestic violence, from obtaining restraining orders to getting the support network on her side. Here are steps on how to combat battering within families, within communities, within homes and at the legislative level.
For Concerned Friends and Family:
What makes these men do it, and is there a cure for them?
Why do women stay?
What can I do to help a battered woman?
And for the Victim--How do I:
Get stronger on the inside?
Deal with the legal system?
Stay sane in a shelter?
Stay save and begin recovery?
This is a how-to book--practical, easy to use--and it just might save a life.

World Peace Begins At Home - There Is No Excuse For Abuse  Sep 26, 2005
Stop Domestic Violence was written more than ten years ago and it is still the number one classic about the need for domestic anti-violence education. If you know anyone who is trying to help a victim or knows someone is trying to get out of an abusive ralationship, this book will answer your questions and will save lives.

The PeaceClinic now posts this book on the recommended reading list for the first ever Peace Practitioners Workshop on Applied Peace Technology. Cudos to the authors, Lou Brown (father of Nicole Brown Simpson), Merritt McKeon, and Francois Dubau.

As Denise Brown, Founder of the Nicole Brown Charitable Foundation has said, there is no excuse for abuse. She and the authors have inspired my own work for inner peace, domestic peace, and world peace. This book can help us save lives.

It works, and it does save lives.  Aug 30, 1999
I am one of the authors, and wanted to update my comments from 1997. I am now a full time attorney - my email is mlm@laislaw.com

I have gotten many faxes, calls, letters, emails etc. from survivors and family members who tell me that the book really gave them the tools they needed to stay safe and recover.

It's not a book to buy and give to a victim - it is one to buy and READ, so that you can help a victim when she asks for help. Read it, then share it.

Excellent characterization of abused spouses.  Feb 3, 1999
I saw myself in the pages. "Learned helplessness" is a phenomenon that is very difficult to understand if you are not a victim. Additionally, our court system (for lack of a better term) is well represented. This well written book validated my decisions as I hope it will for others. Thank you.
