Her book No Visible Bruises: What We Don’t Know About Domestic Violence Can Kill Us is an intimate investigation of the true scope of domestic violence, this deeply-reported book reveals how the roots of America’s most pressing social crisis – from mass shootings to mass incarceration to #metoo – are buried in abuse that happens behind closed doors. Through the stories of victims, perpetrators, law enforcement, and reform movements from across the country, Snyder explores the real roots of private violence, its far-reaching consequences for society, and what it will take to truly address it.
