This book delves into the complex issue of domestic violence, examining it in relation to the psychological development of the perpetrator within Western societal frameworks. By exploring the subconscious influence of the archaic feminine, it offers an insightful perspective on the problem. The author, both a survivor of domestic violence and an academic, provides unique insights often absent in purely academic treatments.

The book delves into the construction of masculinity within Western hegemony, revealing a hidden psychosis underlying patriarchal society. It emphasizes how patriarchy suppresses the female voice and appropriates the female body, ultimately addressing the root causes of domestic violence as a masculine response to fear of the 'feminine'.


Author: Dr. Carole Ramsey is Honorary Research Fellow, School of Philosophical Enquiry, University of Queensland, Australia
