Summary: "Integrating interdisciplinary and cross-cultural analysis, this volume advances our understanding of sexual violence in intimacy through the development of more nuanced and evidence-based conceptual frameworks. Sexual violence in intimacy is a global pandemic that causes individual physical and emotional harm as well as wider social suffering. It is also legal and culturally condoned in much of the world. Bringing together international and interdisciplinary research, the book explores marital rape as individual suffering best understood in cultural and institutional context. Gendered narratives and large-scale surveys from India, Africa, Pacific Islands, Denmark, the U.S. and beyond illuminate cross-cultural differences and commonalities. Methodological debates concerning etic and emic approaches and de-colonial challenges are addressed. Finally, a range of policy and intervention approaches - including art, state rhetoric, health care, and criminal justice - are explored. This book provides much needed scholarship to guide policymakers, practitioners and activists as well as for researchers studying gender-based violence, marriage and kinship, and the legal and public health concerns of women globally. It will be relevant for upper-level students and scholars in anthropology, sociology, psychology, women's studies, social work and public health"--
