When Love Goes Wrong: What to Do When You Can't Do Anything Right

Ann Jones, Author, Susan Schechter, With HarperCollins Publishers $20 (358p) ISBN 978-0-06-016306-8
Abusive relationships are more common than many women think, charge Jones ( Women Who Kill ) and Schechter ( Women and Male Violence ). They argue that even men who have never been physically violent toward their partners may be abusers. Constant criticism, for example, is a nonphysical method of control that, if thwarted, may escalate into violence. Therefore, the authors state, a woman married to a manipulative or overly critical man is in a potentially dangerous situation and should make plans to prevent harm to herself and her children. The book's first half, which includes case histories, provides guidelines to help women determine if they are in an abusive relationship. The second section gives advice on how to escape and where to find emergency help, legal services and financial support systems. Of great importance for abused women and professionals who counsel them. Author tour. ( Feb. )
