This open access book draws on a broad study on violence against men, from both male and female partners in Norway, to contribute
to the research on intimate partner violence. It identifies similarities in men's experiences and backgrounds, including in
their perceptions of their own victimisation. Marianne Inez Lien and Jorgen Lorentzen argue that the traditional gender power
model should be modified and supplemented, and propose that we consider violence in terms of psychological supremacy, rather
than in terms of femininity and masculinity. Men's Experiences of Violence in Intimate Relationships will appeal to students
and scholars across a range of areas including criminology, sociology and family violence, and gender studies.
