The authors identified twenty men who had been imprisoned for killing their intimate partners and made researches to explore the childhoods of these men. The methodology included seventy four in depth interviews with these men and also with their family and friends. The argument presented in the paper is that the “violent forms of masculinities” (Mathews, Jewkes, & Abrahams, 2011, p. 960) adopted by these men is a result of strong desire “to achieve respect and power” (Mathews, Jewkes, & Abrahams, 2011, p. 960).
The problem of intimate partner violence is widespread in South Africa. Although much study has been conducted on the issue of “intimate partner violence and intimate femicide” (Mathews, Jewkes, & Abrahams, 2011, p. 960), much is left to be done. Information available about the long term trends in homicide in South Africa is not enough. Data for the whites, colored skinned and the Indians are available while that of the Blacks is scarce (Prinsloo, Bradshaw and Laubscher, 2010). A further contribution from research works is necessary in this field to understand the roots to this serious problem. The authors of the paper have conducted primary survey and collected information about the ways in which the twenty men had spent their days during childhood. They have conducted “in-depth semi-structured interviews” (Mathews, S., Jewkes, R. & Abrahams, N, 2011, p. 960) with the incarcerated men. The first author had taken two interviews with each of the men ...Download file to see next pagesRead More

The article will benefit the men as it entirely focused on issues that affect their social life. The findings and recommendations suit the men as the conclusions made favored the male. It is important because it discloses the link that exists between alcoholism and IPV. It, however, reveals partisan and unfair ideas as it assumes one gender that IPV affects in equal measure as the males. In the future, the research should factor in both the males and females and design a new strategy for identifying the...
