Maureen Baker, Janet Dryden, Families in Canadian Society, Copywriter

McGraw-Hill Ryerson Limited, 1993,1989.

This book has all the different types of Family violence. The book is laid out in a

reasonable manner and is very clear when it comes to the information. The authors clearly

did a lot of studying and research for the book. Everything is at your disposal if you were

to be studying up on the subject that is.

The book gave me not only a good amount of data that was useful but also a good

insight as to what family violence is all about. Though, I felt maybe more information on

the particular subject that I was looking at, sexual harassment, could of been beneficial.

Yet, the novel was extremely helpful to get the resources that I needed from it. If I were

to rate this book, I would give it at least a 4 out of 5.

George Theodorsen, Lucille Theodorsen, Sociology Principles and Applications,

Copywriter West publishing company, 1990.

This book looked as though I would receive enough information to complete my

project, but when I cracked it open and looked to see how many pages were actually

useful to me, I was disappointed. There was only about a page of information on family

violence all together. I felt that because the subject was of great importance to the nation

it would have enough pages discussing the issue. I feel that it was wrong of the authors to

neglect this subject, more information should of been researched. Since I didn't receive

that much information from this book, I would rate it a 1.5 out of 5. The book was more

or less useless for the research I was doing.
