Bravo to DeKeseredy and Schwartz for addressing the important but neglected topic of abused women and rural culture. The authors offer compelling policy suggestions for effective prevention and increasing personal and collective efficacy. --Susan L. Miller University of Delaware (02/04/2009) Dangerous Exits is a critically important book that details the often invisible terror that many rural women face in their own homes. This book makes a valuable contribution to the field of Violence Against Women by addressing three areas we know far too little about intimate partner sexual violence, the experiences of rural women, and separation/divorce violence. Dangerous Exits is destined to be a classic it should be found on the bookshelves of all of us who study violence against women. --Raquel Bergen author of Wife Rape (01/21/2009) Dangerous Exits is a critically important book that details the often invisible terror that many rural women face in their own homes. This book makes a valuable contribution to the field of Violence Against Women by addressing three areas we know far too little about--intimate partner sexual violence, the experiences of rural women, and separation/divorce violence. Dangerous Exits is destined to be a classic--it should be found on the bookshelves of all of us who study violence against women. --Raquel Bergen author of Wife Rape (01/21/2009) This book deserves a special place among the panoply of new scholarship on rural crime. Innovative and multi-dimensional, Dangerous Exits sounds a powerful call for action and policy change. --from the foreword by Joseph F. Donnermeyer (09/23/2008)

Innovative and multi-dimensional, Dangerous Exits sounds a powerful call for action and policy change. --from the foreword by Joseph F. Donnermeyer Dangerous Exits is a new qualitative study examining the physical, psychological, and sexual violence experienced by rural women in the process of leaving their intimate partners. The book consistently takes its cues from the voices of real rural women, and its grounding in the principles of participatory feminist research is nothing short of exemplary. --Susan L.
