Oxford University Press book contract for Dr Emma Katz

Emma Katz - 2017 Friday 9 February 2018

Dr Emma Katz has secured a book contract with Oxford University Press for her first monograph Domestic Violence, Coercive Control and Mother-Child Relationships: Harms, Resistance and Recovery.

The book is timely because coercive control has recently become a crime in England, Wales and Scotland, and there is demand among academics and practitioners for more knowledge about its impacts on children and parenting.

Peer reviewer comments include; “This book would offer a remarkable contribution even if the field were full of books on this topic. But actually, there are not many books in this area at all”; “no other book analyses the mother-child relationship through the lens of coercive control, adding an important dimension to our understanding of this issue”; and “the quality of writing is marvellous. Katz writes clearly and vividly about complex issues”.

The book is due to be completed in autumn 2019, for publication in 2020.
