Reviews

"The book is a masterful call to reflection and reform. It deserves to be read by scholars in any discipline concerned with institutional responses to sexual violence and how they transform patient-provider encounters in spaces where medicine and law converge."--Theoretical Criminology
"[A] book that is both personal, critical, profound and at times difficult to read."--Metapsychology
"Once in a while comes along a book that not only adds a new dimension to existing knowledge of a phenomenon but changes our angle of vision on it. The Violence of Care is such a book. Through the lens of forensic nursing, Sameena Mulla rearranges categories of law, violence, care, kinship, and obligation, shifting our horizon of thought and allowing new aspects of these familiar categories to dawn on us. A stunning achievement."--Veena Das, Krieger-Eisenhower Professor of Anthropology, Johns Hopkins University
