his volume grew from a conversation in a otel coffee sop in Vancouver, Britis Columbia, in 2006 during te Society for Applied Antropology meetings. We were bot finising our dissertations and felt fortunate to connect wit anoter antropologist committed to te issue of gender-based violence. Wile te field as grown rapidly in te past few years, our own literature reviews were constructed largely of accounts by sociologists, psycologists, and social workers. We believe tat antropology as muc to contribute to tis important field of study, and tis book is a result of our sared passion to ultimately eliminate gender-based violence. We came to tis topic from our own experiences on te front lines, work-ing in emergency selters as victim advocates and otline volunteers. We ave personally felt te adrenaline rus and nausea tat can overwelm one wen driving to a ospital emergency room or police station in te middle of te nigt to assist a survivor of violence. In tat coffee sop we commiserated over our common frustrations wit a safety net of care tat sometimes appeared to ave more oles tan tread, and ow our prevention efforts seemed to fall sort. But we were energized by te spirit of umanity and compassion tat cuts across te various sectors of te front line, across communities, and even nation-states. We convinced eac oter tatAntropology at te Front Linesof Gender-Based Violencewas te muc-needed next step to te contributions in antropology focusing on gender-based violence.  he workers wose stories are presented in tis book deserve attention, support, and appreciation. We cannot tank all te workers by name, but we ope tat you find te stories told ere to be a faitful rendition of your tougts and work. On bealf of our colleagues, and te survivors to wom you devote your energies, tank you for your labor, devotion, and care.  Many colleagues ave supported our efforts troug te years. hree
