From the Volcano Press website, Adam Gottstein, Publisher and Ruth Gottstein, Publisher Emerita:
Volcano Press has been publishing books on domestic violence and women’s health for forty years.
Forty years ago, the domestic violence movement consisted of a handful of grass-roots shelters, struggling to survive.
And yet the struggle to end domestic violence is still a movement. Although today there is the federally funded Violence Against Women Act (authored by Senator Joe Biden), and many dedicated community agencies, activists, counselors, attorneys, law enforcement, and caring families and friends, there is still a long way to go.
We are living in a time of violence. “33 MILLION is the number of U.S. adults–representing 15% of the population–who say they have been victims of domestic violence.” (Source: Harris Poll)
If we can develop tools and understanding to effectively stop intimate violence, perhaps we can develop tools and understanding to end all violence in our time.
Towards this goal, we continue to pledge our allegiance. We hope that the Volcano Press books you see listed here will be of assistance. You will note that we are now making available some fine books and pamphlets from other publishers, and plan to add more as we learn about them.
