Cover of "Prone to Violence," by Ering Pizzey

After Prone to Violence had been published in 1982, shipped out for distribution and placed on the shelves in the book stores, the redfems so thoroughly pilfered the copies of the book that only 13 copies of the book remained in a few libraries in the whole world.
   As a result of that the publisher went into receivership.  That is an example of the power of feminist censorship in action.
   However, the book is now available on the Internet, and it has been put back into print.


Prone to Violence, By Erin Pizzey

Publishing Details

      The book they suppressed in England!

      The emotional terrorist & the violence-prone,  by Erin Pizzey

      In spite of huge social services expenditures, Canada jails proportionally more youth than the U.S., many for violent crimes.  Most come from violent or broken homes.  How can we break the cycle of abuse-addiction-violence?
          Billions are paid to the social service industry annually but many working there privately admit that money and social workers alone cannot solve these problems.  The money relieves the burden of conscience of many individuals who have adapted and survived.  With the old social and economic orders decaying and crumbling, however, we can no longer afford to ignore our jails bursting at the seams, and the Welfare State being complicit in the cycle of violence.
          Eventually we will have to concentrate on an alternative strategy of love and hope for these problem families. Eventually we will have to abandon the model of idealizing the "victim", demonizing the "perpetrator" and politicizing the issues.  Eventually we will have to explore an alternative strategy which is pragmatic, personal, and treats the whole family.

      In this important book, suppressed in England, Pizzey argues that not every battered woman is simply a victim. To successfully reduce violence, Pizzy convincingly shows, workers must distinguish between the emotional terrorist, addicted to pain and provoking violence, and those truly seeking escape from violence.

      This book is the successor to "Scream Quietly or the Neighbours Will Hear", the first book on wife battering. It is a challenging must read for all those dealing with family violence, policy-makers, family rights activists -- anyone concerned about violence in society.

      The book includes:

      • Section 1: The Emotional Terrorist

      • Section 2: Original Research with tables on Distinguishing Battered Women from the Violence-Prone

      • Section 3 The complete text, updated, from her suppressed publication "Prone to Violence", with the exception of the outdated chemicals chapter and the appendices.

      ISBN: 0-88970-103-2  5.5x8.5", 134 pp quality paperback, $19.95

      Erin Pizzey founded the first refuge for battered wives in 1971. From that beginning there are now women's shelters all over the world.  Over a period of ten years, Erin Pizzey became involved with about 5,000 women and their children who came through her shelter.  She is also a writer and a journalist. She has two children and two grandchildren from her first marriage.  She has written: Scream Quietly or the Neighbors Will Hear (also done as a film of the same name), Infernal Child and The Slut's Cookbook. Pizzey's fiction writing includes The Watershed, In the Shadow of the Castle, The Pleasure Palace, First Lady, The Consul General's Daughter, The Snow Leopard of Shanghai, Other Lovers, Swimming with Dolphins, For the Love of a Stranger, Kisses, and The Wicked World of Women.
          She has completed two world tours lecturing on domestic violence.
