This book examines the changing public policies concerning intimate partner violence (commonly called domestic violence) in heterosexual relationships through the lens of shifting gender roles in New Orleans from 1840 to 1900. In those sixty years, the concept of masculinity and femininity as well as race changed and fueled social and legal responses to abuse.
