Summary
Homefront Hostilities is a compelling account of how the First World War impacted on domestic violence in Victoria, Australia. It investigates the war as a causal factor in men's violence against their wives and as an influence on cultural responses to such violence. The book brings to light many individual stories of suffering and brutality in intimate relationships. It is a vital contribution to our understanding of relations between men and women in Australia in the early decades of the twentieth century
