520    "Adopting an explicitly feminist perspective, the book 
       argues that law must be looked at holistically, and will 
       investigate how the legal responses presuppose, maintain 
       and perpetuate a certain context that may in fact not 
       reflect women's experiences. Examples of law reform in the
       area of violence against women and its implementation will
       illustrate both the overt and the 'hidden gender' of so-
       called neutral or objective legal principles and 
       structures. Drawing upon a range of material primarily 
       from Australia and England/Wales but also from the US, 
       Canada and European countries, the book highlights the 
       indeterminacy of the legislation and how that translates 
       into decision-making. Consequently, Carline and Easteal 
       analyse the application and efficacy of the law. Through 
       contextualizing and critiquing relevant legislation, case 
       law, and studies into the legal system, as well as 
       comparing violence against women and policy responses, 
       Shades of Grey will assist law-makers, academics, policy-
       makers and a wider audience in understanding the 
       complexities of violence against women and the potential 
       and the limits of law. The book does even more though; 
       both explicitly and implicitly it provides suggestions for
       best practice models for policy-making and law reform. It 
       is intended that the book will help to improve the 
       government, community and legal responses to women who 
       experience violence. Contextual and comparative 
       information is an invaluable source of the knowledge and 
       ideas needed to deal more effectively with this global 
       public health and human rights issue"--|cProvided by
