Page 25 2 Chronology The purpose of this chronicle of events, laws, and legislation is to provide a historical context within which domestic violence can be understood, to provide an understanding of the impact of particular events on the issue, and to gain an understanding of the cause and effect between events and responses to domestic violence. The history of Western civilization provides the foundation upon which our institutions are built. Our laws are based on the common law of England. I have therefore included important events, laws, and legislation in the Western world that reflect that history.

I hope this book can contribute to that effort.
