        Dear Ms. Stratton:
        Sure.  ALL of those facts and figures can be obtained from an
article which appeared in the Los Angeles Times on June 21st, 1994. (Page
        You might also want to obtain a copy of "The Battered Husband
Syndrome" by Susan Steinmetz of the Family Research Institute at Indiana
University.  Much more of these particular statistics are in that book.
You'll have to look for the book in local bookstores since it has been
effectivly "banned" on many college campuses.  Ms. Steinmetz, BTW, should
be lauded for publishing her book despite her having received threats to
harm her children from radical women's groups based on her own campus at
Indiana University! (The same Woman's groups she was a member of!)
