This book is a useful treatment of this important topic for courts, central government, local authorities, police, community safety units and other key agencies who are seeking to reduce crime - especially when this involves personal safety. "Domestic Violence" looks at the topic in the light of recent history and current developments. These include a broad-ranging strategy by central government to integrate resources across the nation and to encourage multi-agency working, including early action, sound communication, acute awareness, sensitivity and the appropriateness of responses to survivors.A central aim of many organisations (statutory and non-statutory) is to deal with-and whenever possible pre-empt-domestic violence in all its many forms. The emphasis is on pro-active approaches (often including arrest), and there are innovative and forward looking local schemes to limit distress and disruption and remove future risks. "Domestic Violence and Occupation of the Family Home" also contains a comprehensive statement of legal powers, pointing to relevant aspects of the criminal law as well as remedies under the civil and family jurisdictions for women, children and third parties.

The result is a readable and informative treatment, broader than that normally available to judges, magistrates and lawyers - which provides all practitioners with a practical and informed overview enhanced by legal explanations.Ultimately, it is knowledge and understanding of the range of underlying issues - informed by a cross-agency information flow - that will allow all involved to make better decisions. This is of major importance if the scale and impact of modern-day domestic violence is to be effectively challenged. A wide-ranging treatment-touching on aspects of the Cabinet Office/Home Office paper "Living Without Fear" (1999) - and containing a detailed description of strategies to prevent domestic violence and safeguard women survivors. "Domestic Violence" also includes information about criminal offences (including compensation to victims) and civil powers-and extended sections on Non-molestation, Occupation of the Family Home, Protection from Harassment, Court Undertakings and associated procedures (including the enforcement of court orders, injunctions, undertakings and financial penalties).

The authors are family law and criminal law specialists respectively-both with extensive experience-making the relationship between civil and legal remedies for domestic violence a key feature of this work.
