(i) Recommended introductions to men’s roles in violence prevention

Note: I have concentrated here on accessible introductions to men’s roles in preventing men’s violence against women written for the non-specialist reader. For further key introductions – for practitioners, educators, and advocates – see the "Recommended works" section here. Also see XY's very large collection of resources on men's anti-violence work.
