After Prone to Violence had been published in 1982, shipped out for distribution and placed on the shelves in the book stores, the redfems so thoroughly pilfered the copies of the book that only 13 copies of the book remained in a few libraries in the whole world.
   As a result of that the publisher went into receivership.  That is an example of the power of feminist censorship in action.
   However, the book is now available on the Internet, and it has been put back into print.


Erin Pizzey — Founder of the Modern Women's Shelter Movement

For more than two decades we have been exposed to never-ceasing and ever-increasing propaganda to create sympathy for battered wives. Nobody deserves to be treated violently. However, not every woman who is being battered is simply a victim. Countless members of both genders are 'prone to violence', victims of a deep-seated addiction to violence—both as victims and victimizers, vectors in the never-ending cycle of family violence.
As grim as the reality of these facts is, there are possible solutions that can cut the vicious circle of violence that has our society in its tightening grip, in spite of the attempts of the battered women's shelters advocates who have not had all that much success with their aims since Erin Pizzey wrote her book  Prone to Violence.
Prone to Violence was boycotted by radical feminists to such an extent that a search of all libraries in the world that could be accessed from the US Library of Congress through the Inter-Library Network in 1996 revealed a total of 13 listings in the whole World.
I did a search in November 1997, of university- and other on-line catalogues showing library listings. I found two listings in Canada.  One was at the University of Alberta Library, the other at the University of Toronto.  Look for the book in bookstores.  If you should happen to find a copy, hang on to it.  It is a rarity and possibly worth quite a bit now — very likely far more so in the future, once the insanity of the destruction of our families is recognized as such.

Prone to Violence, thoroughly boycotted and totally censored by the feminists, is accessible now on the Internet, but for those who would like to have a hard copy on hand to be able to read it more comfortably if they don't have the need to do word searches, it is  now back in print.
