Book Reviews hidden forms of violence are comparable or qualitatively distinct from men's violence against women is subject to debate, and in fairness to the authors, the purpose of the project was to combat the structures that give rise to men's violence against women. nonetheless, an argument can be made for examining these other forms of victimization within the public discourse on violence against women. Troubling Violence is a well-written, dynamic book that will appeal to those working in a number of disciplines, including but not limited to anthropology, criminology, folklore studies, performance studies, sociology, and women's studies. Academics will draw implications for doing ethnography and scholarship on violence, and in the process, they will be treated to an in-depth account of successful cross-disciplinary collaboration. moreover, social service practitioners and survivors of violence will identify with the narratives presented. to the extent that violence against women is a social problem, it will be necessary to mobilize a cross section of society to eradicate its enabling forces. Accordingly, all men and women should be exposed to this book regardless of whether they are academics or have experienced violence firsthand. upon completion of this book, readers will want to witness
