New on HEB: "Trivial Complaints"

A new entry in in HEB's Gutenberg-e series is now available, “Trivial Complaints”: The Role of Privacy in Domestic Violence Law and Activism in the U.S., by Kirsten S. Rambo. This XML-formatted title was originally published as part of the  Gutenberg-e program, a digital publishing initiative of Columbia University Press and the American Historical Association that showcased the work of award-winning emerging scholars.

Here Rambo explores the relationship between privacy and domestic violence through an analysis of domestic violence litigation in the United States from the late nineteenth century to the present day, taking into account how legal and cultural concepts of privacy have historically influenced the ways in which this society has understood domestic violence. The author has provided access to some of the primary source materials she drew on in her research, including links to transcripts of cases available online, as well audio excerpts of interviews she conducted with some of those directly involved.
