I should like to thank all those who have taken considerable time and trouble to share ideas and read drafts; the University of Durham, for research leave; the National Children’s Bureau, for a Mia Kellmer Pringle Fellowship which funded a trip to the USA and Canada to study services for child witnesses of woman abuse; John, for all the sacrifices made for the sake of this book; and the media, for both competent and incompetent reporting of women’s experiences which enraged me afresh every day and kept me to the task.
In time honoured fashion, enormous help came from all the above but errors and inadequacies are mine.
