ABSTRACT
The author reflects on a study which identifies the characteristics of perpetrators of intimate partner violence and reinforces the significance of exposure to childhood violence as a risk factor in South Africa. He observes that the study's findings are consistent with other South African studies on intimate partner violence and other crime. The author also states that the study failed to explore the relations between perpetration of intimate partner violence and the mental health variables.
