Letters to Amen, Volume 2 Price: €4.00
Domestic Abuse is a serious societal issue which affects both men and women worldwide. However, domestic abuse against men has not been seriously considered until recently. Men play a key role in society as friends, role models, workers, brothers, sons, fathers, husbands and partners. As a result of this, society expects a lot from men, it is expected that men are strong individuals who can face any adversities that life may throw at them.
The stories in this book outline the difficulties that male victims of domestic abuse face on a daily basis. The stories are written by victims and their concerned family members and friends. These stories help abused men see how others have dealt with domestic abuse and encourages them to seek help.
That Bitch – Protect Yourself Against Women with Malicious Intent Price: €7.00
By Roy Sheppard & Mary T. Cleary
The provocatively entitled 'That Bitch' describes a vindictive side of women who skillfully and covertly inflict physical, emotional, financial and sexual abuse on others and offers readers a checklist of telltale signs to recognise a 'bitch' in their lives.
Men are given tips on the type of women who 'trap' men into marriage; advice on what to do if a woman refuses to sign a prenuptial agreement and guidance on how to get a higher settlement if a woman files for divorce.
A chapter is also dedicated to women who use children as so-called 'Weapons of Male Destruction' and describes how malicious mothers learn to hate their former partners more than they love their children.
The book has been written by Mary Cleary, founder of Amen along with journalist Roy Sheppard
Split – True Stories of Relationship Breakdown in Ireland Price: €7.00
By Rachel Fehily
Relationship breakdown is played out behind closed doors, in the privacy of home and under the protection of the family courts. Away from the glare of the media and the scrutiny of the public, what really happens when a couple decides to call it a day? How do they make the decision to leave their relationship and how do they deal with the consequences?
In Split, fourteen men and women speak candidly about their relationships, how they ended and how they picked up the pieces afterwards. They share the lessons they have learned about dealing with the legal, financial and emotional fallout that separation and divorce inevitably entail. From coping with abusive and alcoholic partners to negotiating the minefields of parenting alone, they offer invaluable personal insights from first hand experience.
They tell us where they sought help and details their experiences with the legal, medical and social services. Having dealt with the issues of loss abandonment and self-esteem that are so of then associated with relationship breakdown, they reveal how they moved forward and accepted the challenge of building a new life.
The book is written by barrister and mediator Rachel Fehily.
